From 9th to 13th November 2016 the Austrian capital Vienna will once again welcome book lovers and bibliophiles. With over 300 lectures, discussions, performances – and an International Book Fair – “Buch Wien” will be the greatest Austrian book festival and one of the most important bookish events in Europe. Following on last year's success, antiquarian booksellers will be a prominent part of it.
At the International Book Fair from 9th to 13th November 2016, 16 antiquarian booksellers, all members of the Austrian Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association (VAO) and affiliates to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB), will show rare and fine books from all centuries. Guided tours will show book fair visitors the most beautiful books and manuscripts on display, while bookbinders and book artists demonstrate bookbinding and restauration techniques. At the collective stand of the antiquarian booksellers, visitors can bring their "treasures" and ask for an appraisal to understand and learn about the value of the books.
Michael Steinbach, President of the Austrian Booksellers Association: "The experience of holding an old, rare book in your hands cannot be replaced by anything."
Highlights of their bibliophile offers will be presented in an illustrated joint catalogue.
