An Autumn of Virtual Meetings
Posted on 02/09/2020 in
So, it’s September and we have a very special autumn ahead of us. My colleagues and I are now all back from our holidays and though we still only work occasionally from our regular Stockholm office, we’re up to speed!
Day by day, we are getting more excited about the books that Bonnierförlagen are publishing this year and that we have the pleasure to present to publishers from all around the world. We are thrilled that so many of our friends and clients have accepted our invitation to have virtual meetings as a substitute for the bookfairs in Göteborg and Frankfurt. It is going to be a challenge to do business this new way but we’ll manage and I’m sure that we will learn a lot along the way.
In a couple of weeks we will say goodbye to our valued colleague Cecilia, who is leaving the team to pursue new opportunities. One of the last projects Cecilia is involved in is managing the production and printing of our autumn catalogues for children’s and illustrated non-fiction books, and I can promise you that they will look as smashing as all our catalogues have ever since Cecilia started to be involved in the design and production process two years ago. Print catalogues might seem out of date, and we regularly evaluate the need for them, but I believe they will be more important this autumn than in a long time, at least when it comes to presenting illustrated books. So, if you, dear reader, are scheduled for a virtual meeting with my colleague Mathilde or me during September or October, look out for an old-fashioned and very real piece of printed matter in the mail. It is going to complement our virtual interaction in the most wonderful way.
Wishing you a fruitful month ahead!
Per, Agent for Illustrated Non-Fiction
