Germany Guest of Honour in...

What does that mean? Many international book fairs have followed Frankfurt by focusing on a different country each year. Often Germany as an important book market is given the honour.

With support of the Federal German Office and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, the Frankfurt Book Fair ensures a professional appearance at international fairs. The Book Fair team approaches relevant cultural mediators, for example the respective Goethe Institutes, and arranges a comprehensive representation of Germany abroad.
