The 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair
2005 was an excellent year for Frankfurt!
We returned with contracts in hand for titles in the areas of business, cooking, gifts/humor, golf, health, history, literature, management, martial arts, medical, New Age, nursing, photography, popular culture, religion, and self-help.
Besides the contract offers in hand, we also returned with reading copy requests in 23 subject genres:
Animals; Autobiography / Biography; Business / Management; Children / YA; Cooking; Current Events; Education; Fiction; Health; History; Humor; Martial Arts; New Age; Parenting; Personal Finance; Philosophy; Photography; Popular Culture; Psychology; Religion; Self-Help; Sports; and Women.
The malaise that settled on the international book industry following the 9/11 attacks has ended. Once again, the business of Frankfurt is books.
Here are some photos from our stand. Although we marketed books in most genres as one can tell from the response to our sales work at the fair, we had an especially large number of literary guests since 2005.
