Large crowds have attended the book and study material fair, which has gathered over 250 publishers from Croatia and abroad, since Tuesday’s opening. The crowds at the fair however do not mirror the state of the publishing sector in Croatia over the last few years. Although there has been a big decline in revenues and the number of books sold in Croatia in recent years, resulting in a number of job losses in the sector, Interliber reports that visitor numbers have consistently remained high, with revenues from book sales at the fair rising over the last four years.
Interliber, which is organised under the sponsorship of the Ministry of Culture, and has free admission, closes on Sunday 16 November. (Image: Interliber Facebook)
