Barcelona Visual


Travelling around Barcelona with a book of icons as a guide is what the designer Clara Mercader, aka Mariadiamantes, is proposing with this book, a journey around the Catalan capital through minimalist drawings of its architecture, design, urban furniture, typical food and historic symbols. 50 icons of Barcelona that sum up its history and atmosphere and offer the visitor a far more graphic vision of the city, with illustrations on backdrops in the characteristic colours of the Mediterranean city: the red of the city hall building, the blue of the sea and the yellow of the sun. Each drawing is accompanied by a text translated into three languages: Catalan, Spanish and English.
