London Book Fair

Yesterday we went to London for the day, in order to visit the London Book Fair, a place where publishers from all over the world come to show their books. The London Book Fair is mostly a place for negotiations about rights, and less about magazine people such as us, but it was fun all the same. We spotted racks and racks of Japanese booklets, beautiful French and Swedish cookbooks and most of all we hung around the stand by the American Chronicle books, who publish a lot of creative little books and stationery.

After about three hours we were tired of books, so we went for coffee in Covent Garden, at the Primrose Bakery (a tip we’d gotten via Instagram in the meantime). How great is that?
