Gabinet de les Arts Gràfiques
In 1942, the Museu d’Arts, Indústries i Tradicions Populars created a popular engraving department, using the wood engraving blocks assembled by the Board of Museums before the war. In 1968, due to a growing contribution of diverse materials (machines, moulds, blocks and printed materials) this small museum, located in the Poble Espanyol, began to expand its radius of operation and adopted the name Secció de Gravat i Arts Gràfiques. In 1974 it expanded once again to house an active print shop and was renamed the Museu del Llibre i de les Arts Gràfiques, although the operative opening of the print shop did not happen until 1981.
The museum now forms part of the Disseny Hub Barcelona, and its collections have been relocated to their present home in the repository of the Palau de Pedralbes.
