From the labyrinthine paths and serene squares of the Gothic Quarter to the stunning art nouveau architecture of the Eixample, Barcelona is a place of irresistible charm. Throughout this beloved Catalan city by the sea, dazzling signage is everywhere: glowing mosaics and stained glass, intricately carved stonework and brilliantly gilded placards that herald the city's eclectic mix of commerce, all documented with affection and a dash of obsession by celebrated graphic designer Louise Fili. Grafica de les Rambles is Fili's travelogue and photographic diary of the most striking and inventive signs for restaurants and hotels, farmacias and pastisserias, the workshops of artisans, and grand department stores. This follow-up to Grafica della Strada: The Signs of Italy and Graphique de la Rue: The Signs of Paris is a love letter to Barcelona and a trove of inspiration.


Louise Fili was art director of Pantheon Books before establishing her own studio, Louise Fili Ltd, in 1989. She is a member of the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame and a recipient of medals for lifetime achievement from both the AIGA and the Type Directors Club.
