Events for the general public
The Rule and the Game: a European exhibition
With pop-ups, concertina books, glow-in-the-dark ink, and 3-D glasses, this European exhibition highlights the work of 20 artists who are redefining traditional notions of albums and books, reading and the role of the reader. The exhibition will then be hosted in the partner countries of the project until 2018.
The Transbook Hive
New to the fair this year is an experimental digital lab offering visitors two digital applications created by fair organisers: Popapp, the digital literature portal, and BookTube Power, a video sharing platform for young adult literature. Three transmedia creations will also be accessible, free of charge: Sens, a comic book by Marc Antoine Mathieu (Delcourt) also in virtual reality format (Red Corner) and two augmented reality applications: Nathan Live! and the Histoires animées collection published by Albin Michel jeunesse.
Numerous artists will hold master classes and workshops thanks to the Transbook mobility programme, which helps young artists travel to partner countries to boost their visibility and promote their work.
