Amorlibrorum.fr - The French answer to the pandemic
Since March 2020, the COVID19-pandemic had a significant impact on fairs and the rare book trade as such. During the past months, booksellers and buyers adapted to the virtual environment as the only alternative to keep connected with an exception of the successful physical Salon du Livre Rare which took place in September 2020 at the Paris Grand Palais.
Adopting the ILAB motto "Amor Librorum Nos Unit" - "The Love of Books Unites Us", the French Antiquarian Booksellers' Association, SLAM, has developed a platform to run regular online fairs over the coming months:
2 e-salons will take place throughout the year, in spring and winter.
Exhibitors are all members of SLAM or affiliated to the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers, ILAB, guaranteeing highest standards under the only international banner for old and rare books.
Each exhibitor will present a selection of interesting books: the“bookseller's choice”.
All periods and specialities will be represented, the best from all fields awaits collectors and beginners alike: old and modern books, ephemera or periodicals, bindings, autographs, drawings, photographs or prints, atlases and maps.
See you on the 23rd of April and discover the exhibitors' highlights!
The SLAM e-salon offers a wonderful opportunity to build a relationship with collectors, according to the motto of SLAM’s virtual fairs :
“Enrichir vos collections, cultiver votre curiosité” - "Build your collections, nurture your curiosity"
More information on the Spring '21 Edition of the SLAM Virtual Fair, the E-Salon Printemps, will be published shortly.
All ILAB-affiliated booksellers are invited to join. Please contact the SLAM Office.
