The booksellers in Japan have been hard working for weeks to prepare for the great day! The Empty Bookcase posters have long been fixed at the World Antiquarian Book Plaza next to Tokyo’s Ginza, the members of ABAJ made a special donation of 77.000 Japanese Yen at their meeting on Monday, and on the ABAJ blog you could learn how to sell and how to buy the “symbolic” spines and to fix them at the Empty Bookcase posters. ILAB’s heartfelt thanks go to our colleagues in Japan for organizing such a great event on UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day 2015!
The ILAB Pop Up Book Fair at the World Antiquarian Book Plaza has started three hours ago. ABAJ Secretary Naoyuki Seki has sent the first pictures:
