The Philippines set out to impress after unveiling its booth at the 73rd Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, said to be the world’s largest trade fair for books.
Bright colors and modern silhouettes adorned the booth, designed by Team Manila’s creative director and award-winning designer Jowee Alviar.
The National Books Development Board – Philippines led the booth with the theme “Books Philippines: An Archipelago of Stories,” featuring local works on contemporary fiction, graphic novels, children’s literature, young adult literature, and non-fiction titles particularly on culture, history, and cuisine.
