For me, one of the best things about Frankfurter Buchmesse is the guest country appearances. Vast worlds open up here and offer places to take a deep breathe in the hustle and bustle of the Fair. And even more! What did I know about Georgia until the exhibition at the Struwwelpeter Museum took me to Tbilisi for the 2018 Frankfurter Buchmesse accompanying programme? Around a magical fairy tale, three Georgian illustrators and one illustrator staged the exhibition Tsikara. The show was the most mysterious and unusual exhibition we have ever shown at the museum.
