Award-winning literature and non-fiction from Austria at the London Book Fair

The giant Frankfurt book fair may be the world’s biggest, but for many international publishers the London Book Fair is just as important. This annual spring gathering is a real hive of activity, with publishers, booksellers, librarians and publishing service providers converging on London’s Olympia not only to catch up on the latest trends, but also to hammer out the deals that will determine what we will all be reading in the months and years ahead.

As well as the fair itself, there is also an exciting programme of conferences and seminars covering topics from authorship, licensing and translation to skills, retail and technology. It all goes hand in hand with the fair’s increasing concern with the wider creative industries, something reflected in last year’s gaming zone and celebration of the graphic novel.

The fair attracted some 25,000 visitors last year from an astonishing 124 different countries. Austria, of course, was amongst them, and we will be back at Olympia this year on a joint stand with our colleagues from Switzerland and Germany. Drop by and let us show you some of the best fiction and non-fiction to emerge from Austria over the last twelve months, including the winners of Austria’s prestigious Most Beautiful Books competition. We can also introduce you to the publishers, and advise you on translation support. We look forward to seeing you there!
