DYR: Baetulona Foldout

curvecfd-cover-Baetulona100DesignsForHistoryThis is the “Baetulona: 100 Designs For History”, written in Catalan, Spanish and English. It presents 100 different perspectives on some of the city’s defining moments, worked on by contributing artists spanning over 50 cities:

However, the links provided in the book no longer work, but if you take a quick look online you can still find related articles and artwork. Bought while travelling to Bristol, UK, it was eye catching due to its construction, and we will also be writing about that trip in the near future.

This book is comprised of 220 pages, with a hardcover and can be purchased online or in book stores.
