Arranz-Bravo and books

The illustration of artists’ books has been one of the favourite artistic pursuits of Eduard Arranz-Bravo (Barcelona, 1941). He has created more than seventy such books over the course of his career, making him one of the most productive Catalan artists in this genre. Using lithography, etching and drawing, Arranz-Bravo has produced artists’ books in cooperation with novelists (Baltasar Porcel, Camilo José Cela, Paco Umbral, George Orwell, Miquel de Palol), poets (Francesc Parcerisas, J. M. Sobrer, Santos Torroella), painters (Joan Ponç, Bartolozzi) and photographers (Xavier Guardans). This exhibition sought to revisit this little-known and surprising facet of his
art, and to showcase the various publications that he has continued to produce up to the present.
