Thomas Frognall Dibdin said about bibliomania that it is “the most understanding and worthy of distinction of all types of madness”. On the 22nd of October, on the 3rd anniversary of Krakow being granted the title of UNESCO City of Literature, all bibliomaniacs can count on particular understanding – join us for a special edition of the Krakow Book Fair!
The popular KIK series, miniature editions of Wydawnictwa Filmowe i Artystyczne, classic comics, pre-war historic books and numerous Cracoviana – the Krakow Book Market is a unique opportunity to catch up on reading and be reminded that a good book has no expiry date.
The Market will run from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Presenting their offer will be: Szafa Pełna Książek – the historic bookstore-cafe and antique bookshop from the Podgórze district, antique bookshops 9 Wrota and Abecadło, the hobby bookshop Fan Komiks from Batorego Street, Sofa Literacka from Katowice, and booksellers from the Market Hall.It is worth bringing the whole family – there will be comics drawing workshops for kids, and a demonstration and lecture on emigration publishers for the older readers. Everyone is also invited to the neighbouring Metaforma Cafe, where you can receive a 10% when you show a book bought at the market.
The event is a continuation of the September market on the roof of the pavilion at Powiśle 11 and the April event in Plac Św. Marii Magdaleny, organised on the occasion of World Book and Copyright Day. In the new year, we will be back outside, with an even more interesting offer and on an even bigger scale!
