The French antiquarian booksellers association, SLAM were the first in the rare book trade to successfully stage a virtual fair in April this year, when the Corona crisis broke and the physical fair had to be postponed. An overwhelming response by French consumer but also international trade and arts press encouraged the organisers, despite running the physical fair in September, to pursue the idea of a virtual fair further.
SLAM has now announced to stage a Virtual Winter Fair which will take place from 5 pm on 11 December and continues until 13 December 9 pm. The organisers adopted the ILAB motto "Amor Librorum Nos Unit", "the love of books unites us" to showcase its association with the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers and the quality of all exhibiting booksellers.
