Someone – no-one’s admitting to it, but we suspect Adrian – spilt coffee on one of the hand-made dummies that we’ve been using to gather interest at Bologna, and were planning to reuse at the London Book Fair. This is Camilla with her scalpel and double-sided tape, giving you a glimpse into the throbbing high-tech heart of Nosy Crow’s print book business.
Having seen so many foreign publishers at Bologna, Nosy Crow’s London Book Fair is fairly UK-focussed. Still, we’re sad that a number of friends won’t be turning up from continental Europe and the USA because of the volcano-induced flight cancellations and delays.
But we’re bashing on anyway. Kate will be on a panel called “Maximising digital opportunities across the industry” at the London Book Fair Digital Conference on Sunday which Deb is also attending, and Kate, Camilla, Deb and Imogen will be at the fair on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and expect that they’ll fairly often be found at the IPG stand (J205).
