This is the building with all the curly wires on top of it!

Redeveloped for Fundación Tapies

Editorial Montaner i Simon was one of the most important publishing houses in Catalonia and Spain during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first third of the twentieth. For 120 years it produced an extensive catalogue of high-quality publications with a wide distribution network. After it ceased production in 1981, most of its documentation and printing material was lost or dispersed. With the aim of recovering this legacy, the Fundació Antoni Tàpies has initiated a research project that includes all the contributions from people who were involved, in one way or another, with the history of this publishing house.
