The AL Series, a publishing project by ArtsLibris, works in collaboration with the Fudanció Banc Sabadell and honours its annual commitment of releasing a limited edition of an artist’s book. This year’s publication will be by Javier Peñafiel (Zaragoza, 1964), entitled Teatro dentifrice and designed by Alex Gifreu.

Glòria Picazo and the artist himself will present this edition inspired in the Modellbuch (model books) by Bertolt Brecht, which involves the audience by inviting them to actively intervene on its pages.
