Frankfurter Buchmesse 2021


Author: Franzi Haeussner

The Frankfurter Buchmesse 2021 is the world’s most important book fair, as well as an outstanding social and cultural event. This year it could finally take place again with an audience.

We visited the book fair to get an idea of the latest trends and publications from the world of design books. Among them were the award-winning publications of the Stiftung Buchkunst. There were many exceptional books to see, which we were able to browse through.

Among all the new publications, we also discovered our tear-off calendar Typodarium 2022, which was presented at the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2021 at the booth of the German publishing house Verlag Hermann Schmidt. At the stand of the FH-Dortmund we could find exciting works of students as well as the two publications 100 Poster Battle and Will Feel Eyes on.

Since 1976, the Frankfurt Book Fair has welcomed a different country or region as Guest of Honor each year. This year, the guest country Canada presented a purely digital installation under the motto Singular Plurality. Scattered letters floated on wave-like installations and you could meet authors digitally via a screen. In fact, there was not a single physical book to see in the pavilion, but instead a multimedia experience to be enjoyed.

Although the Frankfurter Buchmesse 2021 could be held again, it was a fair under very special conditions. There were much fewer exhibitors and “3G rule” (you had to be vaccinated, recovered, or tested.) In total, only 25,000 visitors were allowed to come to the fair every day instead of 300,000 and 1,500 exhibitors were presented instead of 7,000 as in previous years—and you could feel that. That led to the fact that one could take a better look at the individual publications, but the variety was unfortunately rather limited.

We hope you enjoy looking at our review pictures and hope to see you again next year at the Frankfurter Buchmesse.
