The Czech Republic was the main guest country at the Leipzig Book Fair (Leipziger Buchmesse) in 2019 after 24 years. In 2020, there was no main guest country at the book fair, and Czech literature should return to Leipzig with "Echo Leipzig" and 11 Czech authors. The Leipzig Book Fair was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Unfortunately, the Leipzig Book Fair did also not be taking place in 2021 , though literary events such as Leipzig Liest ("Lepizig reads") were all over the city.
In 2022, The Leipzig Book Fair was scheduled to take place from 17 to 20 March. Unfortunately, the organisers had to cancel it again.

The Publishing Department is a special-purpose facility administering National Gallery Prague’s publishing activity in close cooperation with art historians, curators, lecturers, collections, and the Gallery’s library. The department’s expert output is determined by its specialist focus. Apart from traditional printed matter - exhibition catalogues, collection inventories, guides, professional journals, conference proceedings, artist monographs - we also publish specialist books about art and related fields (art theory and philosophy, museology, art history archives, etc.), books introducing the Gallery’s collections, and children’s books. Increased output by National Gallery staff (exhibitions, research, education, etc.) has also effected a substantial increase in the Department’s book production over the past few years. Books are published in foreign-language mutations, making them suitable items for interlibrary publication exchange, and presenting the Gallery as a developed institution.
