Taipei, Feb. 9 (CNA) The 2019 Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) will be held Feb. 12-17 at the Taipei World Trade Center, featuring the theme of “Time for Reading.”

According to the organizer, the Taipei Book Fair Foundation (TBFF), the German stand draws on elements of the Bauhaus, marking the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus in 2019, a legendary German design school operational from 1919 to 1933.
