Highlights from London Book Fair 2019

London Book Fair 2019, or affectionately commonly referred to by its acronym LBF19, was another industry triumph.  

Printondemand-worldwide were pleased to be the IPG sponsor and be a part of a buzzing stand, as well as having a presence in the Academic area. 

Kicking off the event were renowned authors such as literary hero Ian McEwan and, David McKee, whose iconic children’s book Elmer the Patchwork Elephant turns 30 this year, which frankly makes us feel both nostalgic and old.  

That’s the joy of the London Book Fair, you never know what you’ll find. As always there were some fantastic talks, some of which we referred in our previous blog. 

Cultural Ideas

Another thing that we look forward to is the market focus for the year’s event, after all LBF is also about sharing cultural ideas, therefore shining a light on new ideas that the UK may adapt to. This year was Indonesia: 

Director General of Culture, Ministry of Education and Culture, Republic of Indonesia, Hilmar Farid, said; 

“A book fair isn’t just about buying and selling rights to books; it represents an exchange of ideas and cultural values. As Market Focus Country at The London Book Fair 2019, Indonesia will, in partnership with the British Council, spread the word of Indonesia’s font of creativity through Great Britain and beyond.”  

Personal Highlights

We enjoyed the reaction from visitors to our stand, who upon taking a book sample, were amazed by our advancement in colour inkjet technology, especially seen on the comic book page. To see for yourself, why not order your free sample book? 

Printondemand-worldwide have the technical ability to produce outstanding colour photo books to print your photography – at a great price. We showcased this at LBF, and the reviews were all extremely positive.  

Customers that we had the privilege of speaking to said they were delighted with our product and with our service; and pleased with how we’ve been driving development changes, especially over the past few months.
