Sadly, Kowasa is now closed, their website too, yet you will find some images so you can make up an idea of how it was. It has been a reference for photographers and photobookies not only in Barcelona, but all around Spain, and many other places, for sure.
They wanted to include a bookjockey session as one of the activities the bookshop gave to theis guests on this special occasion and Paco Navamuel was the person for this task.
He selected some 80 photo books, from around 10.000 volumes that were in the shop after the final inventory, to represent the wide range of books you were able to find on their shelves. Willy Rojas, manager more than ten years at the bookstore, helped Paco with the selection and during the session, moving away the books Paco already used. With so many books to show I’m sure two extra hands were much appreciated. Check it out yourself, take a view at the session recorded on this video:
At the same time I’m writing this, Paco is publishing on 10×10 photobooks instagram account a lot of books and a daily mini bookjockey on a 15 seconds video. I will publish them all together on this web.
Finally some social media editing:
