Book World Prague

5 Titles for $100

The U.S. Commerce Department offered an opportunity to exhibit titles in our third annual U.S. Pavilion at the Book World Prague event, which took place May 15-18, 2014. We helped gain exposure in the market and match your titles with interested publishers.


“Yes, please, sign Quirk up for the Prague Book World Catalog Show again. It provides some of the best and most detailed leads we get from any US Commercial Service event, and we'd be delighted to continue our participation”  - Katherine McGuire,  Quirk Books, PA


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. Translations account to more than one third of the total Czech book production, and its share continues rising, ranking Czechs among the world’s top consumers of translated texts.

Best prospects for U.S. publishers in the Czech market include:

  • Contemporary American literature
  • Social and human sciences
  • Thrillers and Suspense books
  • Educational books
  • Spiritual and Self-Help Books
  • Family and Child Rearing
  • Children’s book series for ages 9-11


  • Cost to register is $100 for up to 5 titles, and $20 for each additional title
  • We can only accept books from publishers, not authors.
  • Our office in Prague must have 1 copy of each title and your catalogs in hand prior to show
  • Preference is given to titles in the genres listed above

By exhibiting titles in the Prague Book Fair Catalog Show, you will receive:

  • Inclusion in the Prague Book Fair catalogue show
  • Targeted list of contacts
  • Online promotion through our U.S. Embassy website
  • Post-show follow-up and trade leads provided to U.S. participants

All titles are subject to prior review before acceptance to ensure that they will be the best fit for the region. After we have accepted your participation we will provide our mailing address. You will be able to send the titles by APO mail at domestic shipping rates, which takes 2-3 weeks to get to Prague.
