Casa Amèrica Catalunya, a successor of Casa de América de Barcelona founded in 1911, is an institution that organizes and collaborates with projects intended to strengthen relations between the Ibero-American community and Catalonia.
The year of its centennial, Casa América published a book with a compilation of the entity’s history, and it engaged our services to prepare a layout that would turn the book into a gift object.
We did the art direction and the editorial design of the book focusing on the Modernist esthetics of the period when the entity was founded. To add value to the edition, we designed a book sleeve with translucent paper where we printed the title of the book. Visible through the book sleeve was the image printed on the book cover: the institution’s original founding document dating back to 1911.
