Olympia Exhibition Centre, W14 8UX
.One of the world's largest antiquarian book fairs opens its doors today 26th May and runs until 28th (www.olympiabookfair.com). The fair hosts over 160 dealers and antiquarian bookshops exhibiting from across the world including major London names such as Sophie Schneideman, Bernard Quaritch and Thomas Heneage. As well as fabulous displays of rare books, the event also hosts a wide range of seminars and activities covering recondite aspects of the antiquarian book world to more practical advice about how to start book collecting.
Here are just a few of the photos taken at last year's event which are featured in the new edition of Book Lovers' London. If you visit the event look out for the book which is on sale at the reception for £1 off the usual price.
