BIRD OF FIRE
Illustration by Benet Rossell
Antoni Clapés (Sabadell) has published over half a dozen collections of his poetry (the most recent, Labyrinth, in 1996) and has been awarded the City of Palma Prize (1988). In recent years, his poems have been complemented by the illustrations of Benet Rossell (Áger), an artist trained in Paris and New York, who has had recent one-man shows in Luxembourg and Barcelona (1996). The limited-edition books produced by the Clapés/Rossell tandem are becoming increasingly well-known and sought after in Barcelona and further afield.
