Frederikshavn, Denmark,

XXIX. International Ex-libris Congress, Frederikshavn, Denmark,
29th August 1st September, 2002

The comparatively small group of about 170 participants in Frederikshavn was conducive to a pleasant congress, not as hectic as previous ones or as some national meetings. An incredible twelve exhibitions were on show, and the delegates' meeting took a range of decisions, from the adoption of a new list of technical symbols to the launch of the first Computer-generated Ex-libris competition. Argentina (GADEL), Andalusia (Spain) and Taiwan (China) were admitted to FISAE. Thus everyone had time and opportunity to exchange bookplates quietly or to chat with friends – and both aspects are important!
