Alc Agency exhibited at the Bologna book fair last week where we met with 89 publishers from 18 countries presenting the latest picture books, fiction and information titles from our growing stable of publishers. It was especially pleasing to have Fu Wenzheng, author, and illustrator of Ash Dressers Her Friends published by Zheijiang and New Frontier illustrating live on the stand (photo). In addition, Heather Vallance illustrator of The Sorry Tale of Fox and Hare published by Dirt Lane Press (photo), Gabrielle Wang translator/author of Two Enchanted Tales from Old China published by Christmas Press, and Felicity Marshall Author and illustrator of Hello Honey Bee published by Propolis Publishing also attending the fair, presenting their new books.
Strong interest was received in many titles and even before we landed back in London requests had coming in for copies of books for a number of very keen publishers. The next week will be busy fulfilling all the title requests before we kick off again with meeting at Mipcom TV fair next week and London Book Fair the week after.
