To the delight of collectors the Salon du Livre et Papiers Anciens is back, better than ever. There will be nearly 80 dealers waiting to show you their treasures. In an area of 1700 square metres you will be overwhelmed by the fabulous selection of collectibles on show. Whether you are a collector or a dealer this should not be missed, and even if you are not directly involved in this area of collectibles you will still find plenty of interest in simply wandering the aisles and seeing the treasures on show.
The event is divided into three main areas. The books section deals with antiquarian volumes and rarities from yesteryear to more recent vintage, including children’s books. Another section deals with paper ephemera and is even more diverse and wide ranging. Here you will find photographs, stamps, postcards, posters, labels, advertising images, prints and playing cards. There’s also cinema memorabilia, magazines, newspapers, manuscripts, autographs, letters and comic books. Essentially, there’s every kind of paper collectible you could imagine.
