Publishing department visits the Frankfurt Book FairSeveral staff from the publishing department accompanied by 30 students from the MA Publishing Programme have returned from a highly successful visit to the 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair.
Many publishing companies obliged the Brookes visitors with appointments on their stands and they gave much valuable information about the way that the rights deals are struck at Frankfurt and at Book Fairs generally. Although this was a short visit, the 'Frankfurter Buchmesse' is an intense but inspiring adventure.
Thanks go to Emma Bourne of Nelson Thornes, Gordon Graham - 'Literature of the Book', Richard Burton of Infinite Ideas, Lynette Owen of Pearson, David Attwooll of Attwooll Associates and David Wynn of OUP.
This reporter also spent time at a joint symposium by the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and the International Publishers Association (IPA):
