You noticed the tv camera on the previous pic?

Well, there are at least five bigger tv studios with several hours live broadcasting at the book fair plus dozens of camera teams, who make reportages, interviews, features ...

That is, where we stayed quite some time (our friend, with whom I've been to Frankfurt, is to be seen on the pic above on the right)

After having walked around for more than 6 hours

we had seen so many books that we couldn't see more anymore, and we decided to drive home

Fine pics, Walter. Thank you for sharing them. BTW, that Vilnius, Lithuanian publisher apparently is named Island of Dreams. That's what the sign Sapnu Sala translates as. (Unless it's the name of a book he's pushing, of course.)

I know: I should have gone into the international hall as weel, or - even better - should have bought an exhibition guide to find a Latvian publisher's stand. Embarrassed

But I didn't pass that one without taking notice Laughing

The book fair ended yesterday:

- 280,000 visitors (a plus of about 5% to last year's figures) saw what more than 7,200 exhibitors from 101 countries presented.
