Lluis Permanyer, Melba Levick. London is famous for Big Ben; Paris for the Eiffel Tower; Rome for the Colosseum. Barcelona, on the other hand, is not identified by one or two famous buildings as these other European cities, but rather by an entire movement of turn-of-the-century architecture known simply as Modernisme. Familiar to Americans as art nouveau, its most famous practitioner was the artist and architect Antoni Gaudi. But the city is filled with superb examples of art nouveau in vivid color in Barcelona Art Nouveau.

Luis Permanyer places the architect's ouevre within the context of Catalan and wider European developments of the time, but he also describes the more personal mystical impetus that lay at the core of Gaudi's inventions. For those already familiar with the architect's work, Melba Levick's superb and detail photographs will prove a revelation; for those just discovering Gaudi, this book is the next best thing to experiencing the buildings themselves.

If you are looking for a comprehensive book about the Modernista buildings in Barcelona this ranks among the best. It could very well be the best.

Being published in the early '90 to answer the increasing interest in Barcelona's Art Nouveau buildings - due to the Olympics in 1992 - it's a very polished and lush book. It doesn't include all buildings (there are at least 150) but with 63 it picks the most interesting.

With many beautiful photo's (507 in total) it does exactly what it says: showing mouthwatering Architectural Details and Delights.

For anyone interested in Art Nouveau it couldn't get any better then this.

If you want something more affordable try Barcelona: A Modernista Landscape from the same author (being a "best of" from this book) showing fewer buildings and photo's but still good value for money.

I own many books on Barcelona, including other books by Louis Permanyer. This is my favorite book from organization, photography and building details. Very many E'eixample buildings are described there. In addition to building descriptions, highlights of ornaments, wrought iron and stained glass are presented. The only thing that it is missing is the map with these buildings (the map can be found in Permanyer's "A Stroll Through Modernista Barcelona").
