Frankfurt Buchmesse opens with the publisher of the Holy See


(14/10/15) Frankfurt Buchmesse, the most important international book fair for the exchange of editorial rights, opens today. The German kermis, that lasts until 18th October, hosts 7 thousand stands from 113 different countries and the publisher of the Holy See, the Libreria Editrice Vaticana.

During the meetings with foreign publishers participating in the Book fair, the Holy See could sell editorial rights. The volumes published in the past year will be presented along with the other books of the catalogue. In the previous years, foreign publishers showed their interest in the books of Pope Francis and the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI and they asked for editorial rights.
