Gasset, Josep, ed., Cartografia de Catalunya dels Segles XVII i XVIII. Barcelona: Institut Cartogràfia de Catalunya, 1986. ISBN 84-393-0705-5. 24x28cm., 165pp., illustrated, paper. (Balmes, 209-211, 08006 Barcelona, Spain)

This catalog describes 66 maps of Catalonia.  There is a large color illustration of each, with a description on the facing page.  The photography and printing are excellent.  A graphic designer who happened to see the book admired both the originality of design and the printing quality.  The printing really is quite impressive.  The only problem is the binding glue, which on my copy cracked immediately upon opening the book.  The introductory text is trilingual, Catalan, Spanish, and English.  This is a very detailed and interesting work.  Other preparers of exhibition catalogs could learn a thing or two about attractive design from this work.

David C. Jolly, 1989
