More Frankfurt

from Press News, posted 10/15/2012 - 16:21

Frankfurt Book Fair is huge, with an exhibition site that spans separate, multi-level buildings. As such, it is only fair it covers two blog postings.  

On the first 3 days, the fair is closed to the public and a "mere" 10,000 or so publishing professionals throng the halls. But which halls? So-called "international publishers" can be found on one of the 3 levels of Hall 5 but, as much of our business is transacted in Hall 8 -- presses from the US, UK and other Anglo-Saxon countries, plus Israel -- by a wee sleigh of hand NIAS Press has a booth there. See if you can spot the fiddle in the photo below.

As you can see by the smart suit our editor-in-chief is all business! Buying and selling rights is at the heart of doing business at the Frankfurt Book Fair. Here a potential Indian buyer for a new NIAS title -- All Religions Merge at Tranquebar -- assesses the work.

And so another book fair has passed, so until next year, Frankfurt.
