Frankfurt Book Fair

from Press News, posted 10/12/2012 - 14:10

Much of the business transacted at Frankfurt Book Fair takes place during meetings.  Typically these are of a half-hour duration and the changeover between meetings can see aisles clogged at times. Since the onset of the current economic meltdown in 2008, the aisle traffic has been much reduced. This year, however, the traffic jams are again more common. 

One of the meetings we had this year at Frankfurt was with the Lontar Foundation, which originated and managed the publication of "Plaited Arts".  That book is now published and out there attracting attention -- currently at an indigenous arts exhibition in Paris, for instance -- but what we discussed at the meeting with Kestity Pringgoharjono (pictured with Gerald Jackson) were new ideas for an enhanced relationship.  This was an unexpected opportunity, something only possible by attending Frankfurt.

Another successful year!
