Frankfurt Book Fair 2013

It may be hard for us to fathom, being over the other side of the world, but books are still huge in Europe. The Frankfurt Book Fair is bigger than big – they say 200,000 people come through the doors over the five days and, with thousands of exhibitors, there’s plenty to see. There are shuttle buses and travelators to get you between halls and an energy that fizzes through every door.

Highlights? The variety and beauty of the kids books and graphic novels from France and the energy and forward-thinking of Canongate CEO Jamie Byng (we’ll see if this influences what you find in our pop-ups).

There is certainly plenty to look forward to in the world of books…
