In partnership with our friends from the Danish communications agency Kommunikationsbureauet København we are happy to present our “Global Bestsellers” campaign to mark and celebrate 15 years with the Human Library slowly spreading around the world.

The seven titles presented in the campaign are some of the most requested topics from our bookshelf.

The adds are being translated into more than 18 languages and we hope to see the global branding starting to penetrate to our local partners during 2016.

All the participants in our campaign are members of a Human Library Book Depot and as such, the real people, representing their topic and with a title they picked for themself.

“We are grateful that our friends from Copenhagen and photographer Morten Bengtsson, were able to help us build this amazing campaign”, says founder Ronni Abergel.

You can see the entire campaign in english HERE.
