Beautifully illustrated books from Barcelona
Grup Enciclopèdia Catalana was established in 1965 with the release of the first ever volume of an encyclopaedia in Catalan. Since then, the group has diversified into publishing a wide array of literature including illustrated works, children’s books, text books, educational resources, and online content.
The first volume of the Catalan Encyclopaedia was an ambitious and unprecedented project, written entirely by hand. To honour its past, the group continues to strive for the same level of innovation and craftsmanship. Today, the works published by Enciclopèdia Catalana dominate the local market thanks to their outstanding level of quality and exclusivity, making them an indisputable reference for thousands of readers.
Since its beginning—in a time when the Catalan language was oppressed, and even prohibited—the group has become a symbol and leader in the Catalonian publishing world. Its mission is to promote and support the Catalan language and culture, not only within the Catalan-speaking territories, but also on an international level.
Following in this tradition, we are currently developing a line of beautifully illustrated, limited edition works in English which showcase rare or unpublished artwork by world-renowned Catalan artists such as Salvador Dalí and Joan Miró, amongst others.
