Edicions de la Rosa Vera


(Updated 11/01/2016)

Jaume Pla created the Rosa Vera publishing house in 1949, with the economic backing of Víctor M. d’Imbert, even though prior to that date five illustrated books with the Rosa Vera imprint had already been published, the first in 1945. In line with the founder’s ideology, the publishing house is characterised by the importance it attached to illustration.
