|Book World Prague 2012 Catalog Show -- Books/Periodicals|
The U.S. Commerce Department is pleased to offer an opportunity to exhibit in our second annual U.S. Publishers Booth at the Book World Prague event, which takes place in May 2012. The U.S. Commerce Department will help you gain exposure in the market and will try to match your titles with interested publishers.
A nation of avid readers, the Czech Republic ranks among the world's top countries in terms of the number of titles published annually per capita. Best prospects for U.S. publishers in the Czech market are in rights sales for bestselling novels, while specific niche markets exist for documentaries, arts and life style, travel and tourism, social and human sciences and children's books. There is high demand in the Czech market for books on art and design, fiction titles -- particularly contemporary American literature -- and U.S. comics books. Translations account for one third of total Czech book production, ranking Czechs among the world's top consumers of translated texts. English has a dominant position, as almost a half of all published translations originate from English language texts.
We are offering this opportunity to exhibit at Book World Prague but space is limited. Each publisher can showcase up to five titles, and we can only accept books from publishers, not authors.
