Montaner y Simón: a Book Factory.


A museum or a book factory? The museum building was built by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as the headquarters of the former Montaner y Simón publishing house. This dynamic visit has been designed for families and reveals the history of the building and its original role as a publishing house. The tour takes in photographs and historical books, as well as compositional tools such as mobile type setting, a galley and a compositor to prove a print. A workshop will be held after the visit where families or small groups will be able to create a page of a group pop-up book to narrate the experience of each of the participants.
