Impressions of the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012
In October 2012 it was that time of year again — the Frankfurt Book Fair, the world’s largest and most important gig for books. Guest of honour this year was New Zealand, which staged a wonderful multimedia show in a darkened hall, replete with a lake. I also took a close look at the Russian stands and spoke to several Russian writers about their books. The result is a 12-minute long personal view of the Book Fair on video.
