Street reading material


So it is Catalan book week (Setmana del Llibre en CatalĂ ). I think it will be a while before I'm reading novels in Catalan, as I am still getting to grips with Castellano ('Spanish'). That said, I was impressed to see this huge book sculpture on Gran Via at Passeig de Gracia. The sculpture is is entitled Homenatge al llibre (Homage to the book) and was the work of Catalan artist and poet Joan Brossa.
