The largest Polish publishers, over five hundred authors and fans queueing up in enormous lines, international guests from England, the Czech Republic, Germany, France, Romania, Scandinavia, Slovakia, the US and several thematic salons starting with a novelty in the form of a Comics Salon. On top of that there is the Guest of Honour – Lithuania, along with its publishers, writers, poets and illustrators. The programme of one of the most important cultural events in Poland – the International Book Fair in Krakow – looks very impressive.
