Photo credit: John Balean – “from my mobile phone camera”

This photo in from Topfoto who were exhibiting at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2012 last week in the “The Image Zone” area along with three other UK based photo libraries Arcaid, Mary Evans Picture Library and Nature Picture Library.
John Balean at Topfoto told PAN: ‘We did well promoting TopFoto with our guides “The Book Covers’ Tale” and “TopFoto: Working with the EU, Europeana Photography 1839-1939”

Fair round up and visitor stats from the organiser:
‘In all, around 7,300 exhibitors from approximately 100 countries were present, and the more than 3,400 events attracted 281,753 visitors. The presence of international publishers in Frankfurt is growing, and industry observers judged the mood among the publishers as more open and adventurous than it was a year ago. This also includes the integration of new players from the fields of technology, film and games into the Book Fair universe; and it means the relationship between publishers and readers is becoming ever closer.’
