‘A great way to learn about Barcelona’s most famous architect and artist… beautiful photographs and interesting facts’ – ABTA Magazine

Antoni Gaudí and his inimicable fluid, organic style will be forever linked to Barcelona. His spectacular buildings – among them the Güell Palace and the monumental La Sagrada Familia – have come to symbolize the city.

This exciting book invites the reader to explore the visual richness of Gaudí’s creations in scores of well chosen illustrations. As well as revealing the architect’s working and building methods, the author also discusses Barcelona’s social and cultural background and the city’s heritage as the capital of Art Nouveau.
