Japan is the honored and featured country this year, with the Japanese galleries seemed centered on one side, near the back quandrant, although work was still spread throughout.


Plus there is additional section of Japanese publishers joined the main floor. we’ll get to those in more details in the days to come.


After a quick 4 hour tour about the fair we scratched the surface, checking out some of the offerings from dealers around the world with an emphasis on the US.contingent.


Sales seemed to be brisk for everyone, but almost each booth was hedging their bets as books were present at almost everyone. Perhaps the thinking was if the market was flat, at least people will pick up a book or two.


We may be guilty of that as the day progress, although the thought of bringing a stack of new books home, makes my luggage ache.

Nothing like the smiling face of Elliott Erwitt to set a tone.

Some views from the floor:

This amazing visual drew us in, as we realized the traditional painterly evocative landscapes had been created with photography and a little photoshop.

A little booth grabber.

Deep in conversation, but the photographs are omnipresent.

By the time we were leaving at 8:30 there was a massive group trying to get in for the last 90 min., but the fire marshalls were keeping a pretty tight eye on the over capacity crowd.
Ah yes, we’re a passionate bunch for sure.
