At the Frankfurt Fair – 2011

Yesterday I returned from the annual Frankfurt Buchmesse. I really like going there as part of my job (acquiring rights for new bookprojects) but it’s also really inspiring, for anyone who loves books. You get to see a lot of of recent and new releases just before they hit the bookshops and you can wander endlessly through the different halls (divided by country) with all kind of different topics. EVERY book that you can order is represented there. It’s fantastic! Just below I’ve included some pictures so you can get a taste for yourself and books that I thought looked really pretty. I really like craftbooks and childrensbooks because of the illustrations. I like the abstract design of these classics and I always go by Phaidon with their beautiful artbooks. I can’t wait for next year!
