1.15 pm, Antwerp - Books across the borders on UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day, 23 April 2015

Two antiquarian booksellers, one trading in Belgium and the other in The Netherlands, decided an international boundary lying between them wasn’t going to stop them participating in ILAB’s celebration of UNESCO World Book and Copyright Day.

Erik Tonen usually enters “his more than elegant antiquarian bookshop” on the Kloosterstraat in Antwerp greeting the shelves with a “Good morning, books” (Marc Didden in De Standaard). Around 30 kilometres northwards, in Ter Hole you will usually meet Peter Everaers of Secundus Antiquarian Booksellers, dealing with fine books, maps, manuscripts and ephemera on the history, literature and art of Zeeland and Flanders. Today the two colleagues are holding an ILAB Pop Up Book Fair at the Bibliotheek Permeke in Antwerp.
