ILAB Pop Up Book Fairs 2015 in the Press


“The celebration is highlighted by more than 30 book fairs organized by the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB) in cities worldwide. ILAB is the umbrella organization of the professional rare book trade uniting 22 national associations and 2,000 rare book dealers in 34 countries worldwide.”

UNESCO, official press release

The ILAB Pop Up Book Fairs on UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day were a huge success. Thousands of bibliophiles met with ILAB booksellers at the most unexpected places across the world. The event was followed up live on the ILAB Pop Book Fair blog and on the ILAB website. The numbers of visitors both on the blog and on the website were more than doubled on 22 and 23 April 2015, and in the social media there were hundreds of tweets, pics and posts about the great day. The Guardian dedicated an excellent to the ILAB Pop Ups and created a special site where visitors of the Pop Up Fairs were invited to upload their most amazing pictures. Find below a selection of articles, printed and online, posts, announcements, blogs and website mentions. Or click here for a press review in pictures. As it is impossible to find all mentions of the great day, the list is far from being complete. Please let us know, if you have more links, pictures or scans of articles about the ILAB Pop Up Fairs. We will be delighted to add them here.
