CCBF is launching the “Children +” focus, a new stream of events aiming to cast light on a trend, a topical subject, a book category of great influence, or a topic that we shall not forget about or ignore. Through exhibitions, lectures, round tables and books presentations, we will discover and rediscover the most fascinating titles published in that category, and hear the best publishers and authors who created them.

Children + will focus on a different theme every year, and this first edition is dedicated to children’s books on art, architecture and design, a trend developed with great vigour during the last decade. The phenomenon concerns the publishing production in the global market.
