Summary

  • The Abadal family, from Moià and later from Manresa, was one of the main producers of prints in Catalonia in the Baroque period, during the 17th and 18th centuries. Soon after it was founded, the Biblioteca de Catalunya acquired from the family a large set of xylographic materials, both woodcuts and engravings on wood. Among these materials was the sample album that the printing house placed at the disposal of customers to help them choose the items they wanted included in the prints they ordered. The album features a wide assortment of images and ornamental motifs that printing houses of that time used to illustrate and decorate printed products. The sample album also contains the original printings of many of the woodcuts preserved at the Biblioteca de Catalunya.
