Frankfurt Book Fair 2017! #FBM17 #FraFra2017

This year’s guest of honor: France! All pics by Franzi.

I am just back from Frankfurt where I visited once more the Frankfurt book fair. This year’s guest of honor was France and it was wonderful to hear people talking French everywhere. Of course, there were also lots and lots of books and inspiring authors I wanna share with you the next weeks. Today I would like to show you some impressions of the fair and its atmosphere, in case you are interested :):

I wish you a wonderful start into the new week – enjoy the sunny fall days and take some time reading good books!

With France as guest of honor at a book fair, there has to be an Asterix!

A wall of books!

The light-flooded French pavilion!

Cookbooks!

The creative business festival THE ARTS+ took also place on the book fair.

The inventive Hendricks gin booth (yeah, there was some booze offered at the fair ;)).

There was also an impressive antique book fair included.

The main stage in the French pavilion.

A view on Frankfurt and the fairground.

Those Pretty Books! #fbm16

book1Der Lauf der Liebe (The Course of Love) by Alain de Botton. All pics by Franzi, made on the #fbm16.

Every year on the Frankfurt Book Fair I am looking out for books that are unique – not only in their content (which remains the priority) but also in their look. I am not the only crazy person doing this – there are even two competitions that are selecting the most beautiful books every year: The Stiftung Buchkunst honors the best book design and then there is the Beauty and the Book Award. Here are my four favorites…

Have a beautiful day!

book4Alice im Wunderland & Alice hinter den Spiegeln (Alice in Wonderland & Alice through the Looking Glass) by Lewis Carroll, illustrated by Floor Rieder.

book2The cookbook Octaphilosophy by the Taiwanese chef André Chiang looks extremely precious.

book3The most beautiful children’s book I have seen this year on the book fair: Von einem mutigen Hasen, der heimlich auszog, die Welt zu entdecken und das Fürchten zu lernen (From a brave rabbit, who secretly went away to discover the world and to learn what fear is) by Alexandre Chardin and Mylène Rigaudie.
