About Us


The 2005 London International Book Fair

We returned from London with contract offers in hand for Native American titles, photography, sailing books, sports, travel, mind/body/spirit, literary, gay and lesbian fiction, and poetry.

The demographics of the fair are of interest as well, especially as the location of the London fair changes next year.

For 2005, there were approximately 2,000 exhibitors. Total attendance rose by 4.1%. The greatest increases were among international buyers (+16.8%) and Europeans (whom the British count separately) at 13.3%.

We think these numbers indicate a shift to a greater internationalism at London, but one that is still in its formative stages. Buyers haven't yet determined how buying at London in the spring fits with how they buy at Frankfurt in October, but all the buyers want to be ahead of the game.

This is an important consideration and one that will be resolved in the next year as the London fair moves from the Kensington Olympia to ExCel, a recently opened modern facility 16 minutes by light rail east of the Tower of London. ExCel is now the largest single-hall facility used for trade shows in Europe. Put another way, future London fairs will much more closely resemble Frankfurt physically, with, we anticipate, a similar psychological impact on how buyers use the show.

We thought you'd like to see some graphics from London, of our stand and some of the titles on it.

Also here is a photo of the Irish publisher Con Collins of The Collins Press talking with Harry Smith (The Smith).

A few years ago, while working with us, Harry sold Con the Irish rights to the manuscript of Celtic Rituals, A Guide to Ancient Celtic Spirituality by American author Alexi Kondratiev Subsequently, we sold Spanish language rights to the book and a Scottish edition has appeared as well.

The photo from the Cheshire Cheese comes courtesy of the well-known German actor Mark Oliver Bögel who was a guest on the International Titles stand during the fair.

We are a literary agency and marketing service established in the early 1980s. For some years now, we have concentrated on selling rights to English language books into other languages.

Though we work year round on behalf of our clients, right sales naturally focus on the two major international book fairs for the year, the Frankfurt Book Fair (October 19-23, 2005) and the London International Book Fair (March 5-7, 2006). We are also at our U.S. fair BookExpoAmerica each year.
