This year's fair was pretty bleak...but not due to attendance (the fair was positively bustling) or down to sales (deals were plentiful). A dark shadow hung over the book fair aisles...Dystopian fiction had arrived. Reflecting numerous natural disasters that have shocked the world in recent months, werewolves and vampire titles could now be seen battling post-apocalyptic disaster books for chart-topping success.


The Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the most important international event dedicated to the children’s publishing and multimedia industry.  In Bologna, authors, illustrators, literary agents, licensors and licensees, packagers, distributors, printers, booksellers, and librarians meet to sell and buy copyright, find the very best of children’s publishing and multimedia production, generate and gather new contacts while  strengthening professional relationships, discover new business opportunities, and debate the latest sector trends.


The fair typically attracts approx. 1300 exhibitors from 67 countries and 4763 international professional trade representatives.

There's no escaping the fact that the ash cloud travel crisis had an impact on this year's London Book Fair.  However, the new Illustrator's Corner in association with childrensillustrators.com proved a roaring success.  "It's fantastic to see this new area of the fair championing illustrators", commented Mike Jolley, Art Director, Templar Publishing.


In association with www.childrensillustrators.com, The London Book Fair ran a competition for illustrators, new and established, to have their work displayed in the new Illustrator’s Corner, a key area of the Children's & Young Adult Publishing Zone.  The illustrations were judged by Chris Riddell, author, illustrator & political cartoonist for the Observer, Bruce Ingman, author & illustrator and Deirdre McDermott, Picture Book Publisher at Walker Books.  


In addition to the winners' artwork display and childrensillustrators.com plasma screen presentation, the Illustrator's Corner also played host to the popular Children’s Illustrators & Art Directors/Editors Networking Reception.
