Books Germany is talking about
Every year, the Frankfurt Book Fair puts together a number of book collections on different topical subjects. These are currently being discussed in Germany and also noted with interest in other countries. The standard collections include children’s books, new literary releases and other.
With funding from the Federal Foreign Office, the Frankfurt Book Fair presents book collections on the German collective stands that pick up on current areas of interest.
Are you interested in any of the books on display? Our colleagues on the spot will be happy to set up contacts with the German publishing companies or to advise you on how to obtain the books on show.
You can also view the book collections in the Frankfurt Book Fair’s offices abroad.
Licensing opportunities for German-language publishers
German children’s and young adult books are very much in demand among international licensees and an absolute export hit for German publishers, representing nearly a third of overall turnover. While the picture book was the frontrunner in 2010, children’s books came out on top in 2011. Most of the licenses were sold to China, though Europe is still the most important licensing market for German publishers.
For many years, the Frankfurt Book Fair has been inviting German publishers to exhibit a selection of their books abroad in order to meet this great demand.
This year, 15 renowned publishers will participate in the Children’s Books on Tour collection. A total of 54 compelling titles will be displayed and promoted at 16 foreign book fairs and at our foreign offices in China, the USA, Russia and India.
The Children’s Books on Tour collection will travel with the German Collective Stands to the following fairs in 2013/2014: Buenos Aires, Abu Dhabi, St. Petersburg, Tehran, Warsaw, Bucharest, Rio de Janeiro, Beijing, Helsinki, Indonesia, Istanbul, Guadalajara, Moscow, Cairo, New Delhi and Vilnius.
