Angouleme 2012, post 2 of 3

The Angouleme Festival is held every year at the end of January. That means it's winter. The tents are well heated... and busy. You see lots of attendees lugging their heavy coats around as well as bags of books!

This is one of the most elaborate booths at the show.... they have a wooden "book bar"... and extra chairs that were quite popular with tired attendees.
Several of the booths feature prints and posters like this:
At almost every booth, you'll see artists doing elaborate sketches for signings in the French style.
I liked the spiral display of books at this booth:
And this cute book about a cartoonists life with his dog "Dugly" had this wall of photos of someone dressed in as Dugly visiting famous sites in Paris.
