THE BOOKPLATE SOCIETY IS HOSTING THE 2020 FISAE CONGRESS
Delegates to the 2016 congress have decided that the 38th International Exlibris
Congress will take place in Cambridge in August 2020. We propose to base this at Churchill College, with a formal dinner in the old dining hall of St John's College. As long ago
as 1982 this Society ran the 19th congress at Keble College, Oxford. It was adjudged a considerable success, and a brief write-up can be found on
the FISAE website HERE. Cambridge seems a fitting follow-up. We hope to welcome 400 participants and spouses from maybe 30 countries to a
thoroughly enjoyable event, with the introduction of some innovations. Click on the 2020 home tab (see left) to go to the pages outlining the Society's plans.
Registrations exceed one-third of the total number expected, and the web pages will develop as arrangements progress.
