  • What Our 2018 Exhibitors Said...

    "I have been showing at The London Book Fair for two years running now, and it has been a thrilling, exciting and engaging experience. It is a great opportunity to network with fellow artists and book lovers and build contacts and find work opportunities. I would encourage all illustrators to take part, it is a fantastic way of showcasing your work to people in the industry - and everyone is so warm and welcoming!"Joseph Sankar, Illustrator
