Frankfurt is still vast, but it seems to be getting smaller - The Shatzkin Files

I’ve spent more than half-a-year of my life in Frankfurt, one week at a time. My first Fair was 1976 so this would have been my 39th if I attended them all. I think I missed two, so that’s 37. I love it and I get enormous commercial benefit from it.

Turning the pixelated page | The Economist

Turning the pixelated page | The Economist | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
EVERY year the Frankfurt Book Fair, which opened yesterday in Germany, is proof of the scale of the publishing business. Some 275,000 visitors from around the world, including editors, agents, journalists and publishing executives, attend. The gathering acts as a marketplace for buying and selling the rights to new books in different territories, as well as a showcase for trends in the publishing business. One of the most surprising is the degree to which the books business has stayed “analog”. E-books spread rapidly in 2007, after Amazon introduced its Kindle e-reading device, but the majority of book sales remain print, not digital. PwC, a consultancy, expects e-books to surpass sales of printed consumer books (not including professional and educational ones) by 2018 in the US and Britain.
