Salon du livre et de la presse jeunesse 2013

Last week, together with my sister, I visited Children's Book Fair in Montreuil. In this post, I'm sharing some photos I took on the last day of our three-day trip. The first day we spent wandering around the book stands spread over two floors of the building. It was crowded and buzzing with kids, but the range of books was fabulous.

Next day, we finally discovered the ground floor with a stunning display of illustrated superheroes observing visitors from all corners of the hall. That day was also dedicated to meeting several French publishers and showing our portfolios on scheduled meetings. It was a great first time experience for both of us.

In the evening, we attended a private view of the exhibition with student books from the European competition "A Picture Book for Tomorrow". Our collaborative book "TWO" was among the 24 projects which were selected. Below is a photo of it. The top row displayed the three winning books.

The stands were very bright and colourful with loads of beautiful books:
