Editorial Reviews

Review

"A striking book of photographs has been released that documents in detail the rich aesthetic beauty of signs from across the city of Barcelona."
- Lonely Planet

"The colourful spreads show everything from metal Art Deco signs and wrought iron to more delicate mosaics, stained glass and carved stone. Photographs of the painted, sculpted or forged signs evoke something of an archiving method, as Fili scrambles to capture these signs of old before they disappear for good."
- Eye Magazine (UK)

"Signage isn't necessarily the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Barcelona, but it seems we're all missing a trick. Graphic designer Louise Fili celebrates some of the most stunning Modernista and art deco signage from the Spanish city in her new book "Gràfica de les Ramblas," with impressive results. It features a compilation of nearly 400 images of stained glass, mosaics, carved stonework and wrought iron signage from restaurants, hotels, farmacias and even department stores."
- CNN Travel

"Fans of the mighty Louise Fili will be delighted to hear that the master of decorative design has a new book in the works which will be landing in mid-September. The volume takes the Catalan city of Barcelona as its focus, exploring the irresistible charm of its decorative signage and hand-made wayfinding as inspiration."
- AIGA Eye on Design

"Catalonia, as it has shown of late, likes to do things its own way. That distinctiveness comes through in Barcelona's signage, much of it done in its turn-of-the-century Modernisme style, a fanciful take on art nouveau. Typography buffs will be in for a treat."
- San Francisco Chronicle
