Booklette

Foire du livre photographique

On September 15 and 16, 2023, Images Vevey and Photo Elysée join forces to organize the 2nd edition of Booklette, a fair bringing together Swiss and international photographic book publishers, created in 2022 by Images Vevey.

The equation is simple and convivial: Books + Raclette = Booklette, which will now take place on even-numbered years in Vevey and on odd-numbered years in Lausanne.
