The Sunday market of Sant Antoni is a place very well known to the locals, the market for second-hand book par excellence, located under the arcades of the market since 1936. Over time, the purchase and sale of books has been creating opportunities for other products, such as videos, music, plates, collectibles such as postcards or calendars, posters and even video games. And although his bookish spirit is prevailing, some booksellers join their creative spirit showing some amazing work. Bernat Casanova is one of this artists, which stops at number 101 offer interesting books at great prices, but also exhibited his artwork and his father artwork, as the example shown in the photos. Bernat uses old postcards, stamps of exotic book pages worn and loose, to draw and give new life to paper. These you see here are just some of his creations, including his precious business card. If you want to see more, you can go into Antiquaris Gallery, at No. 72 Boulevard Rosa (Paseo de Gracia 55-57, Barcelona) or Maxo Gallery (Portal Nou, 29, near the Arc de Triomphe, Barcelona).
