Burgos² — A Book of Our Acclaimed Instagram Photographs of Burgos, Spain
“Absolutely brilliant!! It’s a fantastic book, congratulations!
A very complete view on the city, its people and landscapes.”
— Héctor Jiménez, Diario de Burgos
In early December, Mufidah and I launched Burgos², our book of Instagram photographs of Burgos, Spain. The 144-page hardcover book contains 367 of our 1,400+ Instagram photos of Burgos, both city and province, and is available here via Blurb, where you can preview the entire book.
These are the photographs which, in the words of Diario de Burgos journalist Héctor Jiménez, made us “famous on Burgos social networks more than a year ago,” and which inspired Jiménez to feature us in two separate articles — published exactly a year apart, on 25 November 2012 and 2013 — in the city and province’s main daily newspaper.
Burgos² (or Burgos squared) simultaneously reflects the square format of the images, the book itself, a compact 7″ x 7″, and the fact that it stands as a lasting, physical memento of Mufidah’s and my combined creative output throughout our seven-plus months living in the city that captured our hearts. Blurb has done an excellent job of printing and binding the book, so it’s a joy to hold and peruse. The binding, paper and dust cover are all topnotch, and the colors beautifully true.
Preview all 144 pages of the book. Suggestion: click on the fullscreen button in the lower-right corner of the Blurb preview window for a better viewing experience.
And, in celebration of Epiphany, or El Día de los Reyes, you can save €5 (approx. $6 or £4) off the regular price if you order a copy of Burgos² by 6 January 2014.
