This is an annual event that invites publishers from around the globe to share their latest books with the public in a beautifully decorated space. The Publications Department of Qatar Museums will also have a booth at DIBF, number (58) gate (2), to introduce our wide range of books and catalogues for art and culture lovers of all ages.
