«We just entered springtime, Sant Jordi (23d April) is about to arrive and, for many, during the weeks surrounding this great celebration, their love for the written word gets intensified (and renewed). During these days I start to frequent libraries with a special diligence and La Central in carrer Mallorca is one of my favourites. There, I meet Jordi Carulla (Barcelona, 1972) and Alba Vinyes (Barcelona, 1987), the team responsible for Edicions Poncianes: an independent publisher that since 2007, has not only vindicated the figure of artist Joan Ponç (1927-1984), it has also offered books where poetry and art have a key role. The three of us sit on the terrace of La Central’s cafeteria, located in one of the Eixample’s typical courtyards and —semi dazzled by an early afternoon Sun that catches us slightly unaware— we begin the following conversation.»
Gabriela Zea Nadal interviewed us for the magazine Barcelonogy to talk about our project.
