Gabinet de les Arts Gràfiques
The collections of the museum bring together significant samples of typography such as punches, matrices and tracing plates, as well as, prints that include samples of binding, packaging, labels and posters.
Important printers such as; Elzeviriana, Bobes, Seix Barral and Tobella, Naips Comas (the makers of playing cards), Tallers Roca (the industrial bookbinders) and the Neufville type foundry, have contributed to the museum’s expanding resources. In addition, certain artists and their families, have also donated graphic works and engraving moulds – as is the case of Miquel Plana and the families of Josep Obiols and Miquel Llovet.
The collection is presented during exhibitions and study galleries programmed by Disseny Hub Barcelona.
Explore Wallpaper. Study Gallery
The concept that initiated the The Study Galleries was to create an area that combines the ideas of a temporary exhibition, a documentation centre and a museum repository but that has it’s own identity. Various objects are assembled according to their typologies and presented in a way that allows visitors to study, contemplate and reflect upon the museums collections.
