Frankfurt Book Fair: The Future of Independent Publishing

At this year’s edition of the Frankfurt Book Fair, one of the many live events originating in the new Frankfurt Studio media production unit, independent publishers, agents, editors, and scouts addressed the future of independent publishing in a two-hour series of short talks with Publishing Perspectives’ Porter Anderson.

Among the panelists was Sandro Ferri, publisher of Edizioni E/O, discussing the two worlds in publishing—independent and corporate publishing—and that they co-exist but rarely meet except sometimes in Frankfurt.

The independent and corporate worlds would do well to come together more frequently, he said, and cooperate because they need each other.
