Barcelona Bookimobile

Barcelona now has a Bookimobile. We introduced the new Bookimobile to Spain at the Kosmopolis 11 Literature Festival.

Booki Mobile Barcelona

We have worked here now for two days doing workshops, helping people produce books produced in Booki, and talking to people about book production. Tomorrow we have workshops and presentations. It has been loads of fun and we made a lot of cool books and also worked a lot making pleigos. Pliego is a small book format that can be made from a single page (folded into 8 or sixteen pages and ripped along the edges to make a book). It is an extremely simple and beautiful format.

The Bookimobile was designed to take the ideas of Booki to people and make real books that have been created in Booki. It now exists in Berlin and now also in Barcelona. The first Bookimobile (now in Berlin) was based on the Internet Archives Book Mobile. It was also initially sponsored by Mozilla, CiviCRM,,, and iCommons. The binder for the Barcelona Bookimobile was donated by Google Summer of Code.
