This week, Blink Publishing took part in one of the biggest book events of the year,  The London Book Fair 2016. The London Book Fair (or LBF) is a large book-publishing trade fair held annually, in London.

It was SUPER busy, with exhibitors from over 60 different countries!

Here at Bonnier Publishing we had our own stand, where we got to showcase all of our lovely titles, complete with our very own pic 'n' mix stall...

Some of us went to watch a talk on how to make books trend, whilst others gave a talk! Meet Ben Dunn, our MD (second from the right):

London Book Fair is a great way to meet people and make connections with others in the book world. Our team has worked really hard to showcase the great books we are publishing this year at Blink, not least including Alfie Deyes The Scrapbook of My Life, James Hunt McLaren and Pixiwoo's makeup bible, FACE.

To top it all off, our very own Nick Coveney won the Trailblazer award, for his work creating digital apps to go with our books, including the very successful Pointless Book App. We asked him what he thought of the LBF experience:

"I had a very busy but positive week at the LBF –  my week started with the Quantum conference on Monday, back-to-back meetings and a few events as one of the LBF’s TrailBlazer Award winners which was a real honour.  It was brilliant to see the great range of Kings Road titles championed fully alongside the other divisions of the Bonnier Publishing family. I kept being told by contacts that we stand out from the crowd and have truly established a reputation for innovative publishing – with bestsellers like Scrapbook of My Life to market-leading licences like Harry Potter Colouring we really do tell #adifferentstory."

We hope you had a great time if you managed to get down this year, and if not - we'll see you next year!
