A press release by the public relations office of Iran Cultural Fairs Institute (ICFI) which represents Iranian print industry by introducing more than 200 books at this year’s edition of the fair, said a large number of university instructors, students and people visited the Iranian stall and purchased several titles, in particular Farshchian’s book of paintings.

Offering catalogs and brochures which introduce the Tehran International Book Fair (TIBF) and registering the names of Indian and international publishers for the next edition of the event to be held in May, are among the other tasks achieved by the ICFI.
