Save the date - ILAB Pop Up Book Fair in Vienna!
The Austrian antiquarian booksellers will hold an ILAB Pop Up Book Fair at the new Literature Museum on UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day, 23 April 2015.
ILAB's participation in World Book and Copyright Day is a rare opportunity for ILAB affiliates to work together on the same project, on the same day, on a project which promotes the future of our trade while at the same time reaching out beyond the world of antiquarian books.
