The Frankfurter Buchmesse – considered being the world’s most important marketplace for printed and digital content in the publishing and media industry – was hosted this year for the 70th time. Together with our partner publishing houses Faksimile Verlag and Eikon Editores from Spain we contently look back on the trade fair where we made a lot of positive impressions. Right on the very first day, we were pleased to welcome a film team at our booth and we had the chance to talk about our publishing house and our expectations during the book fair.
This year’s product innovation, the digital audio pen for our documentation “The Royal Psalter of Sainte-Chapelle”, was received very positively by the fair visitors. For the first time ever, it is possible to hear our fine art facsimile pages “talk”. The worldwide first documentation kit with audio pen allows experiencing our splendid leaves in an even more impressive way. It allows to contemplate the miniature while listening to the detailed description. By the way: the expected release date of our facsimile “The Royal Psalter of Sainte-Chapelle” is going to be next year. Read here more about it.
Another highlight was certainly our new series “Masterpieces of Islamic Book Illumination”, which encountered enormous interest among many visitors. We are pioneers in the reproduction of exquisite facsimile single pages of the Islamic world and we see ourselves as ambassadors of the cultural heritage with the aim to positively contribute to the understanding between nations.
As in previous years we invited to our traditional aperitif at our booth. It was a great pleasure to meet with our publishing colleagues, partners and friends enjoying Spanish delicacies and toasting with Austrian sparkling wine. There was a lot of laughter, singing and discussions. This valuable exchange of ideas between friends is very gratifying for us and we will definitely keep this tradition for the years to come.
We want to sincerely thank our colleagues and friends for the strong interest and the tremendous support before, during and after the book fair. We are already looking forward to cooperating again with you during the upcoming Frankfurter Buchmesse.
