Frankfurt’s Book Bonanza
For first-timers, the Frankfurt Book Fair can be a little overwhelming. Around 300,000 people attended the trade show last year. This year is expected to be just as big.
Since not everyone can experience the bonanza of books in person, Magazin Deutschland decided to stop in and find out what all the excitement’s about.
To start with—there’s a lot of reading going on. No big surprise there right?
The exhibitors‘ booths are really colourful–especially in the Art & Design section.
There’s a little zaniness too. This was by far the strangest booth display.
You can find books about everything—from Kurdistan’s history to cats doing yoga.
Lots of people get together to talk about book deals and such.
And publishers discuss books in their catalogue.
And authors (like Donna Leon) are interviewed about books they’ve written.
There are also a lot of snacks. Books and bon bons are a great combination.
Have you been to the Frankfurt Book Fair before? What were your impressions?
