Here are finally the photos. Today I’ll introduce the book fair itself, but from tomorrow on I’ll showcase cosplayers. I’ll round if off with a few celebrities (that some people will know others won’t).
In front of the book fair’s entrance, I found this beautiful rose:
Seems small, right? See the true size compared to a visitor:
The area of the book fair consists of a central glass hall, the congress center (that’s the smaller building front left beside the glass hall), and five halls with the booths. The additional buildings in the front are for administration purposes, and everything is interconnected with glass tubes. Here is a photo of the model in the entrance hall (the glass of the display case reflected strongly. I couldn’t take a better picture):
Once inside, you found the fair’s logo everywhere, even on the stairs (I blacked out the visitors’ faces for privacy reasons):
Those who managed to squeeze through to hall five Booth B302 found the Qindies (for me always the highlight of the day):
BTW, Qindie is the German equivalent to the B.R.A.G. Medallion, and several of my books won both.
