Festival Mirades (Photos)

This saturday we were at Festival Mirades, the fourth edition of this festival but the first time there was a photobook fair. The fair took place at the central square of the village, a nice small and busy place with a friendly bar who provided of all kind of food stuff during all the day. Thanks to everybody who came, if not, don't miss us this thursday at Gràcia this saint george day. We are going to have a desk at the central square of the village (Plaça de la Vila) next to Lindero Libros and Anodina zines. :)

Catacrack by Pere Saguer

Last month, Pere Saguer published El confort dels estranys, a 210mm per 297mm collage zine in full colour explained on Pere's blog. This April, we present another collage zine: Catacrack.

With lots of red, and some erotic cuts from asian films and american adult magazines this collage zine is the most personal, including also some drawings by hand and scribbles which remains Cy Twombly's work. Specially the paintigs from 1960 to 70, see here.

You can get a copy of Catacrack on Bad Weather Press website or wait to the next fair in Torroella de Montgrí photo festival on Saturday 18th of April (all day).
