    The “Castellers de Vilafranca” is a group dedicated to building human castles that was founded in 1948 and is now the world leader in this activity. Although the first volume covers the first eight years of the association’s history – the period when they wore pink shirts – the book has two parts that are clearly differentiated (by using a different paper and different size). The main challenge was to create a book on the history of a very local tradition, with an overall vision that would satisfy those who were more and less traditionalist in their outlook. The size of the book, use of typography, proportions of the images, use of different papers, sizes and materials, and every detail are designed to produce the best book on the human castle tradition – a unique publication that people will want for themselves and to give as a gift, at once classical and contemporary.

The “Castellers de Vilafranca” is a group dedicated to building human castles that was founded in 1948 and is now the world leader in this activity.

Los “Castellers de Vilafranca” son la colla más importante del mundo y su história empieza en 1948. Aunque el primer volúmen se ocupa de los ocho primeros años de vida, la época en que lucían camisa rosada, el libro tiene dos grandes partes diferenciadas claramente (gracias a usar distinto papel y distinto tamaño).
 
El reto principal era hacer un libro de história de una tradición muy local, con una visión global y que debía satisfacer los más tradicionalistas y los menos. Así, el tamaño del libro, el uso tipográfico, la proporción de las imágenes, el uso de los distintos papeles, tamaños y materiales, todos los detalles, etc está diseñado con el objetivo de hacer el mejor libro sobre la tradición “castellera”, un libro único, objeto de deseo y regalo, clásico y contemporáneo a la vez.
