Asheville, NC – Biblio.com, one of the largest used and rare book e-commerce sites, recently announced plans for its Biblio.live virtual book fair. Scheduled to launch on June 2, the book fair will be an opportunity for rare booksellers around the world to connect with Biblios’ vast audience of bibliophiles.
Brendan Sherar, the founder and CEO, was first inspired to organize this event by the explosion of the online book collecting community in the wake of the pandemic. His hope is to bring the magic of book fairs into the customer’s living room. “For more than 20 years, Biblio has worked tirelessly to build a strong independent community of book lovers, collectors and booksellers. Through Biblio.live, we are excited to connect an even broader community of real-time bibliophiles to each other and to experience exclusive and unique books and collectibles from the best booksellers in the world,” says Chérar. .
During the virtual event, book lovers and collectors will be able to browse an exclusive collection of books, art, cards and ephemera at nearly every market price. Biblio is also excited to continue this show with an innovative new chat feature that will allow customers to chat one-on-one with sellers while browsing.
Customers can expect to browse a wide variety of unpublished books and ephemera, as well as have the opportunity to meet fascinating vendors. Exhibitors can expect a seamless sales experience, networking with other book collectors, and proactive support during the event.
