First of all, thanks a lot for the support and orders of the ebooks. I will start to work on the 3td issue of THREE soon as it should cover july to september posts.
 
After been in contact with Piers Faccini via twitter, I found El Calotipo via instagram. When I saw the pictures of their work, I feel their passion for printing, paper and, more important, details ! I was looking for a new partener for the 2014 letterpress calendar, so I contact them. They are in Zaragoza, Spain, and as I am in the south of France, it is not so far and organize a trip there. I have Spanish blood in my veins, my great-grandparents are Spanish and I often went as a kid. And just for the Iberico ham, it's worth the trip! The most impressive is their lead in terms of "gluten-free" : pizza, sandwiches, special dishes in restaurants, big "gluten free" sign on products... a dream !
 
El Calotipo are Carla and Nelson, and their studio is located in San Pablo neighborhood of the city :  the place that has witnessed the evolution of the craftsmen in their workshops since the fifteenth century, we aim to give impetus to this area of the city and recover some old crafts and new technologies works taking as a starting point the following: manual printing generates some qualities which are very interesting in graphic design.

But is was not all ! The whole neighborhood was worth the trip. After showing me their work and talked about our project, Carla gave me a tour of surrounding shops and creatives : Las Armas square, is a new project to revitalize this part of the city and we have a part of association of creative people, called Las Armas Espacios Creativos, founded in 2011. We are 8 creative projects.

Some of the spaces werre closed (well it was august !) but had the chance to met some of them. Mù Restoration who share my love for vintage items and furnitures. If ye have home furniture (and if you live around Zaragoza, of course) that needs to be restored or transformed, in Mù Restoration take care to give a new 2nd life.

Amazing creative place where art extends around the buildings destroyed. Art hide the scars in the city and put creativity at the heart of urban development.
