»We are ABOUT to be friends« is the motto of the first ABOUT Independent Publishing Fair in Hamburg. This fair for small publishing houses and self-publishers that work within the fields of art and design is taking place on Sunday 30th of September 2012 as a framework program of the »Joy of Graphic Design« Festival.
