Index Books is a prestigious publishing house of international scope, based in Barcelona and specialising in graphic design and visual identity. In 2012 Index Books collaborated with Bilbao Ekintza and Alhóndiga Bilbao in the organisation of the third edition of Selected Graphic Design from Europe, an event that brought together professionals from across Europe with the aim of exchanging creative ideas and solutions. Every year Index Books publishes Produced with Love, which offers a selection of projects by designers and artists with a special emphasis on the production phase. A reference work in its field, the publication includes different creative applications: from special inks and papers to new typographies, innovative formats and the use of unconventional materials.
The 2013 edition includes the project Arte para tocar [Art for touching], commissioned by the Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao from Estudios Gráficos Durero (Bizkaia) and sponsored by Iberdrola. The project consists of a series of masterpieces from the Museum’s collection transformed into relief and accompanied by an audioguide that enables visually impaired visitors to enjoy a museum experience. The result is the application of pioneering technology to a unique, educational project. Other leading cultural institutions including the Museo del Prado have already expressed interest.
