Vienna International Book Fair


Buch Wien, otherwise known as the Vienna International Book Fair, is a quite recent newcomer on the stage of International literary events.

Although the event has now reached the status of “main literary event” in Austria, it still differs in scope from events such as Frankfurt or Leipzig. The primary goal of the Vienna Book Fair is to foster the relationship between publishers and their readership. This is why, every year, the event is simultaneously organized with the one week long “Reading Festival”.

Goodbye 3D Globe...

When we started building literaryglobe.com we had an actual 3D globe with dots on it. However, we had to let go of this idea because it was to futuristic for the time we are in. It runs very difficult or sometimes not at all on a lot of older compter systems and most phones. It also took a long time to load and initialize. Maybe we will re-instate this tech in the future, but for now a 2D map will have to suffice.
