On 3 June the Exhibitions Hall of the Communications Library and General Newspaper Archive inaugurated the exhibition entitled “Entre línies. Viatge, desig i fantasia il·lustrada” [Between Lines. Travel, Desire and Illustrated Fantasy], organised by Cultura en Viu, the official master's degree in Analysis and Management of Artistic Heritage and the Department of Arts and Musicology. Vice Rector for International Relations and Culture Carlos Sánchez was in charge of inaugurating the exhibition, which will be on display until 25 July and from 2 to 17 September.



This exhibition travels in different directions through illustrated literature, including the great universal classics treated as literary jewels and traditional tales passed down orally, as well as children's tales, adventure stories and other main mainstream stories.

The general idea is to show that books go far beyond their unique stories, which are always plural, and are mixed with the narrations of those who read them and connect with the imaginary world described in order to create a visual idealisation of what is being told. The illustrations, therefore, are not only a broad example of the text, but many times become something independent and turn into a unique fantasy which summarises this imaginary.
