Over 160 antiquarian booksellers as well as private presses, bookbinders and other affiliated trade exhibited last week from the 9th to the 11th June 2011 at the world's oldest antiquarian book fair, the London International Antiquarian Book Fair at Olympia.

In one year's time exactly, Bologna will host an event very important for all of us, the International Congress of the ILAB, September 20-26, 2010.
