The London Book Fair begun

The London Book Fair – one of the most important book fairs in the publishing world – begun yesterday. The Book Institute is organising a Polish stand, as it does every year, in order to make it easier for domestic publishers to establish business contacts and to enable the sale of copyrights and thus increase the presence of Polish literature on foreign markets.

Visitors to the fair will be able to see the offerings of twenty-four Polish exhibitors. A 90 square metre stand in the Olympia London hall will showcase: GW Foksal, inkBOOK Europe, GLOSSA, Czarna Owca, Rebis, Natuli, University of Warsaw Press, Wydawnictwo Kobiece, Marpress, Makami, ZNAK, Grupa Zaczytani, The Szansa – Jesteśmy Razem Foundation, Mamy dla mamy, OzGraf, Jagiellonian University Press, Wydawnictwo Literackie, Opolgraf, Wydawnictwo Czarne, Dressler Dublin, National Centre for Culture, Agora, Kurtiak i Ley, Warsaw Book Fair, International Cultural Centre, Dzika Małpa, Drukarnia Pozkal, Polish Your Kitchen, Grupa Relacja, Powergraph, Centre for Contemporary Art „Znaki Czasu” in Torun, Zwierciadło, National Institute of Architecture and Urban Planning, Kici Nici.

In addition, the Book Institute will present new titles from the catalogue "New Books from Poland 2023" and "Polish Books from Children and Young Adults 2023". A selection of books published with the support of our ©POLAND Translation Programme will also be on display. The stand will also remind us of the 100th anniversary of Wladyslaw Reymont's Nobel Prize.

The London Book Fair is the most important book fair in the world – next to the Frankfurt Book Fair – and is attended in large numbers by publishers, agents, and authors from all over the world. 

The fair will last until 14 March.
