The abC Art Book Fair this year was phenomenal. It lasted three days from August 11-13, with indie publishers from all over China and neighbouring countries, with workshops and lectures throughout the day. We geared up for the event this year with our own proper table space, and met many of our readers and also introduced LOST to many new readers who came by. We also had an amazing bilingual Skype talk with Urs Spindler from Die Brueder in Hamburg, organized by Yizhi Zhang of doooogs. We spoke mostly about Gentle Rain, Indiecon and the differences between indie publishing in Germany and China.

A big thank you to the team at dreamer for organizing all this!

今年的 abC 藝術書展 特別棒。活動一直從8月11日至13日進行,參與的獨立出版人來自全中國各地以及一些周邊的國家,除了擺攤還有工作坊和講座。我們今年還做好了準備,有了自己的桌子,跟很多LOST雜誌的讀者見面,以及和新的讀者相遇。我們也一起與 doooogs 的 張一只主辦了一個Skype對談, 和來自德國漢堡 Die Brueder 的 Urs Spindler 談關於他們出版的 Gentle Rain 雜誌, Indiecon 以及德國獨立出版和中國獨立出版的區別。
