Confirmed guests for 2015 : Fuego Books & Christian Lagata, Discipula Editions, David Fathi, Antonio Xoubanova, Collective Paris Berlin…
Pop Up Bookshop
There will be a 3-day pop-up bookshop, with a fine selection of self-published books, and books from independent publishing houses
The selection will include many titles you have already heard about, and hopefully some you have missed and will be happy to discover, including hot-off-the-press titles, and also rare & out-of-print titles from 2015 and earlier. Many of the books displayed will be available as signed copies, and a few pre-owned finds will be presented on the bookshop’s tables as well.
Booksigning sessions called “Apero-Signings” will be held on Saturday evening (18:30-20:00).
The idea is a 90′ session where all the artists will be there together. Each artist will shortly present their book, and then will be available to discuss and chat with everyone, occasionally signing your copy, all while having a nice glass of wine or a sparkling water.
