Just got home from Day 1 of the Manila International Book Fair (MIBF)! Opening day is always my busiest (this year more than the recent ones after a series of delays in the morning), and my feet are sore and my arms are aching, so I’ll let the photos do the talking, hmm?
I’ll go straight to the recon photos — mostly taken in transit (and in a hurry), and I don’t have the time to sort, so you’ll have to forgive me if I’ve missed out on some booths — I still have four days! :D
Perhaps the most popular book at the MIBF — at least half a dozen booths are carrying some iteration of the Johanna Basford book. This is a special Artist’s edition — pull out a page and it’s ready to frame.
A new book in the Illustration School (Sachiko Umoto) series! (NBS)
The new Bloomsburys, which I am sorely tempted to complete
(waah, I only have Deathly Hallows so far!).
But I’m holding out for the illustrated edition of PS1 coming out next month.
Crazy over coloring books
for art supply hoarders *ahem, ahem* (NBS)
Oh my Glob! (NBS)
Shelves and shelves of coloring books (NBS)
This series appeals to the trivia junkie in me (NBS)
Electrolychee’s Biyaheng Langit (P850, Tradewinds)
Complete your FSJ collection (Tradewinds)
Make magazine available for subscription — I wish they’d carry Craft as well (APCEI)
It’s baaack! (P300, Bookmark)
Love this old-timey set! (NBS)
In case you were wondering (and I’m sure you are) — I have not bought half the books in this post. Frustratingly, I had less than an hour to shop today — will make up for it before the weekend crowd descends upon us! — and some of the books I wanted disappeared in the evening (raaaaats!). I am hoping they get restocked or else I’ll have nothing for my loot report (give me a couple more days…).
Anyway, good hunting, one and all, and see you at the MIBF!
