BOGA is the pocket gallery that Michele Siquot has lead for over 10 years. It's a portable space that promotes small format art.  

Today the exhbition "La preponderancia de lo pequeño" starts at the Museo Histórico Provincial de Rosario (Argentina), in which the BOGA artwork, coupled with the Museum's miniature collection, will reflect a new view to  the Museum's patrimony.

More information at BOGA's website and at the Facebook event.

Very recommended! We wish we could be there.

10 YEARS OF BOROBILTXO:

We went a little bit crazy when we lettered "El planeta de la señorita"! We cut each one of the letters with Photoshop, and we rearranged them to, magically, appear in Spanish.

Due to our youth and lack of experience, a few spelling errors slipped into the book, as a reviewer kindly noticed...

10 YEARS OF BOROBILTXO:

10 years ago today we had the presentation party/gig of "El planeta de la señorita"!

It was at Big Bang club, in Raval in Barcelona, and the bands Veracruz, Las Dolores and J. Irizar played. It was a success, many people came and the shows were great!

10 YEARS OF BOROBILTXO:

After many months working on the book with Kati Rapia, 10 years ago these days we received the copies of "El planeta de la señorita" from a small printing house in Guinardó.

We were very happy about the book, it was even better than we expected. And so despite our lack of experience. This were our faces of emotion.

10 YEARS OF BOROBILTXO:

At the Mercè celebrations in Barcelona in September 2002, during a show by Jaume Sisa and Antònia Font, Jordi told Quique about his trip to Finland and the wonderful artists he discovered in an anthology.

We got excited and we decided to start the publishing project. This is how Borobiltxo Libros was born! We were impatient to contact Kati Rapia and start working on our first book, "El planeta de la señorita".

10 YEARS OF BOROBILTXO:

The first time we read anything by Kati Rapia was in an anthology we found at the Kiasma Museum in Helsinki. 12 authors participated in it, and each page would tell a day's story (every author illustrated one month).

After dreaming about starting a publishing project for so long, when we discovered Kati's work we fell in love instantly and we were convinced that she had to be our first author! We wanted to publish Kati's month of February, despite not understanding the texts! That ended up being "El planeta de la señorita". 

The anthology is called "Sarjakuvapäivät" and, funny enough, it was published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publishing company Suuri Kurpitsa (http://www.suurikurpitsa.fi/).

10 YEARS OF BOROBILTXO:

We discovered Kati Rapia at the end of 2001, during a trip to Finland that Jordi did to visit her friend Laura. Later, Laura would translate "El planeta de la señorita" from Finnish to Spanish.

Laura makes music and she has released 3 records as Lau Nau!

10 years ago today we published "El planeta de la señorita" by Kati Rapia!

This brings us a lot of memories! It was our first book, so in a way this is our 10th anniversary!

To celebrate it, we're going to tell you some old stories about our origins. We hope you find it interesting.

We're happy to still be alive!
