Next stop Munich’s pop-up rare book fair

My colleague Charlotte Lacroix visited the ILAB pop-up rare book fair in Munich earlier today. The event took place in Kaufmanns-Casino and I particularly adore the idea of books appearing in a place of gambling.

Kaufmanns-Casino is a famous cocktail venue where Munich’s movers and shakers like to drink after work and it’s been that way since the 19th century. Everyone who is anyone in Bavaria has been there. Located on the prestigious Odeonsplatz, Kaufmanns-Casino hosted around 120 guests for today’s ILAB book fair.

One of the organizers, Eberhard Köstler, welcomed the guests and a good number of local booksellers were in attendance, including Abeceda Antiquariat, Christof Groessl, Hartung & Hartung, J. J. Heckenhauer, Daniela Kromp, Antiquariat Kurz, Musikantiquariat  Marion Neugebauer, Dasa Pahor and Thomas Rezek.

Enjoy Charlotte’s pictures.
