The Baltic Countries

  • The Baltic Countries

    The Baltic countries will be our Market Focus for 2018, consisting of Estonia, Latvia and  Lithuania, marking a century since their independence.

    “Located at the crossroads between Europe and Russia, the Baltic Countries – Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania – enjoy a rich and cosmopolitan literary history, complementing a fascinating contemporary cultural landscape. 2018 will be a year of celebration for these three countries as they celebrate a centenary of independence, and our Market Focus programme will be part of a wider cultural showcase. We are delighted to be working once again with our partners at the British Council and the Publishers Association, to deliver cultural and professional programmes showcasing the opportunities that the Baltic countries offer.”
    Jacks Thomas, Director of The London Book Fair

  • The Legend:

    As humans we perceive the world in analogue. Everything we see and hear is a continuous transmission of information to our senses. Therefore a book and a physical contact with it will always remain the best mean of conversation.

    That is why a special symbol has been designed to represent languages of the Baltic countries. It is a unique combination of three different languages which creates a visual hero for the Baltic countries market focus. The first letter of the alphabet starts a dialogue as well as follows us every time we need an indefinite article to express our thoughts: a book, a letter, a conversation.

    It invites us to dive in the Baltic sea of books.
