Frankfurt Book Fair 2019

30 Oct 2019 15:59:57

The Frankfurt Book Fair is always a special event in the Eurospan calendar, and follows a lot of careful planning and organisation by the team here months in advance. This year was busy as usual, and we welcomed the opportunity to meet and re-connect with colleagues, friends and customers travelling in from different parts of the world.

104 countries were represented at the Fair this year, giving it an international profile like no other Book Fair. The visitor count clocked up to 300,000 and around 7,450 companies set up at the Fair to exhibit their services. With these statistics in mind, it certainly is a big operation, and one that we enjoy being part of every year.

Eurospan returned to Hall 4.2 again this year, alongside a number of Science, Technical & Medical publishers. Joining the Eurospan stand this year were the American Mathematical Society and SIAM – both leading Mathematical publishers in their field. Additionally, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Physicians and Central Recovery Press also exhibited on the stand. We were also pleased to host Infobase, SLACK Incorporated and Society of Exploration Geophysicists, as well as a number of University Presses: The University of Wisconsin Press, The University of South Carolina Press, Rutgers University Press and Brookings Institution Press.

The stand was dressed with a number of books prominently displayed, across all Eurospan-subject areas. We were pleased to be able to accommodate our client-publishers on our stand, and support them with their busy meeting schedules and appointments throughout the Fair. The Eurospan team also had a number of meetings on the stand, and were available throughout the Fair for any publisher or customer queries.

Thank you to everyone who visited the stand this year, and we look forward to exhibiting again in 2020!

Dead Reckoning, the graphic novel imprint of Naval Institute Press, has released an exciting new graphic novel, Once Upon a Time in France.

A new English edition of the French series by Fabien Nury, illustrated by Sylvain Vallée, and translated by Ivanka Hahnenberger, this omnibus edition collects the original series together. Once Upon a Time in France became an international bestseller, selling over one million copies and garnering awards including the BDGest’Arts Best Scenario Award, BDGest’Arts Album of the Year, and Angoulême International Comics Festival Best Series Award, among many others.



Based on a true story, Once Upon a Time in France follows the life of Joseph Joanovici, a Romanian Jew who immigrated to France in the 1920s and became one of the richest men in Europe as a scrap-metal magnate. For some, he was a villain. For others, a hero.

As Germany occupies France, Mr. Joseph thinks his influence can keep his family safe, but he soon finds that the only way to stay one step ahead of the Nazis is to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. Though he plays both sides of the fence as a Nazi collaborator and French resistant, a tangled web of interests forms around him that proves it will take a lot more than money to pay for the survival of his family.

You can download an exclusive extract from the beginning of the novel here, and the full title is available to order on the Eurospan Bookstore now. You can also view more on the Eurospan Instagram.
