Book Fairs and Events
The Swiss Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (VEBUKU/SLACES) and its president, Alain Moirandat, are proud to host the 40th ILAB Congress in Lucerne from September 22nd to 26th, 2012.
From the beginning the Swiss antiquarian booksellers have been strongly affiliated to the League. The first ILAB President, William S. Kundig, came from Switzerland. The 5th ILAB Congress was held in Geneva in 1952, the 15th ILAB Congress took place in Basle in 1962, while the ILAB members enjoyed the 25th ILAB Congress and 8th International Antiquarian Book Fair in Zurich in 1978. Thirty-four years later, the ILAB antiquarian booksellers from thirty-two countries all over the world will return to Switzerland for another important international conference with an exciting programme highlighting the variety of Swiss art, architecture and culture, folklore and industrial history. The 40th ILAB Congress will be followed by the 24th International Antiquarian Book Fair at the Zurich Convention Centre next to the Lake Zurich and the Zurich Fine Art Fair which takes place at the same time. Both events will attract lots of art lovers and bibliophiles. For one week they will change Zurich into the international market place for everything rare, extravagant and beautiful.
