This week we celebrate culture and love. Sant Jordi is coming at home, a perfect time to read and discover new authors / books and give a detail that alludes to a flower. Today more than ever, we want to raise awareness about more responsible, sustainable and local consumption. What better way than doing it through our online selection of artisans, emerging artists and independent publishers. Discover our selection for you by clicking here.
One of MYBARRIO’s iconic books is “Scrolling After Sex” by Leticia Sala, edited by Terranova in the genre of fiction.
This book is a compilation of almost everything she has written to date, from her first uploads to Fotolog, still a teenager, to the most mature text she thinks she wrote to date, the rest is electricity, which you will find at the end of the volume.
This is a different book, a book made of small fragments, notes, doubts, even single phrases. It has the quality of being many books in one. It is an intimate and courageous self-portrait of what it means to be a young and insecure woman in contemporary Barcelona. It is a smart and sharp reflection of the omnipresence of the Internet and its tentacles in the social and emotional life of millennials.
It is a romantic novel, straddling the idealization of reality and the demystification of fiction. This book is all that and much more. But above all, Scrolling After Sex is the first-person testimony, the exhaustive and self-conscious documentation of the birth of a new literary voice. This book shows the babble and blemishes, but also the determination, honesty, and strength of a new author called to become one of the most unique and interesting personalities on the national literary scene.
Paloma Wool participated in several editions of our crazy design Pop Up, one of them was our first pop up at Casa Gracia in June 2016. To this day, Paloma Wool has three editions of books on the act of dressing from a creative point of view.
This book “14/14” by Paloma Wool, was her first volume Hors Série. It is the publication of the yearbook of fashion designer Paloma Lanna, which includes the first year of existence of her firm Paloma Wool, from which she has collaborated with some of the most relevant artists and photographers on the contemporary Barcelona scene, such as Carlota Guerrero, Alba Yruela, Isabella Killoran or Blanca Miró. The volume combines without distinction commercial creations, artistic experiences and intimate reflections of Paloma herself, in what ends up being a faithful and personal portrait of the brand that bears her name and is inseparable from her own identity.

This “16/17” book by Paloma Wool is the last to come out.
Third volume in collaboration with fashion designer Paloma Lanna, this time a double yearbook of the third and fourth year of the firm that bears her name: Paloma Wool. In this case, it includes collaborations with artists such as Tanya Posternak, Candela Capitán, Albert Riera, Crista Leonard; Mau Morgó or Karin Haas, among many others, in addition to the usual Carlota Guerrero, María Gaminde, Tana Latorre, Olga de la Iglesia and María Sosa. The book continues the spirit of the two previous volumes, combining without distinction commercial creations, artistic experiences and intimate reflections of Paloma herself, in what ends up being a faithful and personal portrait of the brand that bears her name and is inseparable from her own identity.

Discover the magazine “On Healing Faith“, a short project developed by Ana Cuba within the framework of a master in artistic direction at ECAL in Lausanne.
Bracketed between a quote from a scientist about the miracle and one from an astronomer about science, Ana presents a series of meticulously prepared images that cover alternative therapy practices such as chromotherapy, homeopathy, magnotherapy or Reiki.
With a gaze in a delicate balance between respect and irony, aesthetics and discourse, Ana leaves the viewer open the door to critical positioning, reserving for her an uncomfortable place when choosing to stay on the surface or plunge fully into the background.
With her new collection Cuadernos, Terranova wants to claim a series of minor works that are no less relevant. Projects too brief to make up a book, but too good not to deserve a paper edition, to rescue them from the magma of periodicals and online content.

Happy week of love and culture to all. And especially happy Sant Jordi from home. 🙂
