By the Book8 will focus on changes in the book trade, past and future. Whether these are based on technological, economic or sociological phenomena, they invite us to reflect on the behaviours and practices amongst the book industry, commercial and cultural actors in the field of books, and readers. We will concentrate on notable trends in publishing, crossing different sectors from consumer to academic publishing. Of particular interest this year are the challenges for industry personnel around securing resources, whether this concerns talent, IP, paper, or investment funds.
