Michele Siquot sent us photographs of her mother, Marta Bertotto, in Europe in 1949, when she was 14 years old. The texts from "Diario de un oso en París" are fragments of the diary that Marta wrote during this trip.

After a too long hiatus, we announce the publication of a new book! Its title is "Diario de un oso en París", with art by Michele Siquot and texts by Marta Bertotto.
This is the second book by Michele Siquot we publish, and it's a very special project this time, because the book includes fragments of the travel diary that her mother wrote during a trip to Europe in 1949. Michele accompanies these texts with early 20th century postcards of Paris that she illustrated with her tender art.
The book will be in stores on February 8th and we'll have a launch party in Barcelona on January 31st. You can read more information about the book here. We hope you like it as much as we do!
There are news at Borobiltxo Libros! Very soon we'll announce details of our next book, that will be published at the end of January. We're very excited.
We wish you a happy new year!
