The Brussels Books Fair creates a link between everyone to share
the pleasures of literature. It brings partners together. It allows the public to meet the actors of the book. It creates links between literature and distant audiences. It connects and plays its role of conciliation, intermediary or link between people or things.
The symbol evokes this hyphen, which can also be interpreted as the fold between two pages, the link that unites them, or the edge of a book. It becomes the emblem of the Brussels Book Fair, a strong symbol that brings roundness, empathy while reminding us of our attachment to the world of books.
