Antiquaria Ludwigsburg offers a real variety of antiquarian books, autographs, ephemera and prints in the beautiful setting and atmosphere of the Ludwigsburg Music Hall. Visitors get an opportunity to meet over 50 booksellers, make new contacts in the world of bookcollecting and share their knowledge and passion with the likeminded.
Every year the fair choses a central theme. The 2020 theme was: "Antiquaria multikultura - tolerance - diversity - freedom", acknowledging the city's multicultural history and making a clear statement against racism, intolerance and xenophobia in our society.
Since 1995 the fair awards a prize on the opening night, the Antiquaria Prize for Book Culture.
The 2020 Antiquaria Prize was awarded to book designer Christoph Meckel. More information about the prize can be found on the prize website. This highly recognized prize in the rare book world is endowed with EUR10,000 and honours special achievements in the protection and promotion of book culture.
