North of the Raval district, in the immediate vicinity of the Universitat de Barcelona, lies Loring Art, one of Barca's most established art bookstores. The shop's history dates back to 1991, when Angeles Loring founded his eponymous book distribution company. Five years later, Angeles opened the Loring Art bookstore. Although initially only featuring one hundred-odd titles, Loring Art was unique in that it also sold art-themed calenders, letterpress kits, games, surrealist postcards and other stationary. This was before the museum shop craze really took off and Loring holds the distinction of being one of the first bookstores in Spain to offer more than just books. Apropos books, Loring's once humble inventory has since ballooned to over 25,000 titles (including comics and fanzines) on contemporary art and visual culture. Subjects include: architecture, design, cinema, dance, photography, electronic art and music. And at Loring, art isn't only to be found in books; the store space now boasts a beautiful wall painting by local artist Hombre Lopez.Show lessRead moreFritz
