Facts.

4 days in January of non-stop comic festival. very nteresting and very exhausting even after one day! 

 if you really are into Comics and Graphic  Novels will it be worth theeffort.

 Most books that are on show and are being sold are in French.

At the festival all the books are in French, so any events or happenings are announced in French, therefore it can be hard-going for non-speakers.

Accomodoation: Homestay with a local person normally costs €50. The Angouleme Office Tourist board publishes a long list of homestays. Expect to speak French.

Books for Angouleme: I am quite keen to select the best and most sellable work of Illustration Students as the three of us will be lugging it all down and hopefully not back to Cheltenham.

Submit anything you have by the 1ST WEEK AFTER THE X MAS HOLS. Include a typed price list.

What books to submit:

I found that the buying public last year were very keen on the following:

Anything that is wordless (no eenglish pleeze!)

any books that were well produced: nice paper, good print

Jamie Mills’ work was VERY in demand! Check out his work if you don’t know it already.

Illustrations aimed at children

Cute animals illustrations

Stuffed animals, toys
Postcards
Badges

Zines
Freebies with your contact details and website as
