Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair

2011

Iceland was the Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2011, which took place from 12 to 16 October. This provided a unique opportunity to present Icelandic literary culture to Germany, and to the book world as a whole – as well as to promote Icelandic culture and arts in general.

It is estimated that about 200 Icelandic titles, and German titles on the subject of Iceland, were published in the German language area during Iceland’s appearance as Guest of Honor. More about Iceland as the Guest of Honour here.
