Doble Mirada: Madrid-Manila

At the turn of the century, the Philippines is presented to the world in two cities
 
In July 2015, Filipinas Heritage Library collaborated with the Toronto-based independent researcher, Francisco G. Villanueva, in organizing the mini exhibition entitled Felix Laureano: First Filipino Photographer at the Ayala Museum. The Panay-born photographer had successfully set up his own photo studio in Barcelona and was likely friends with the propagandista who fought for reforms in Spain in the late nineteenth century.In 1895, Laureano published Recuerdos de Filipinas, a photo-album of Philippine scenes accompanied by short descriptive essays. Recuerdos de Filipinas was displayed at the Exposición Regional de Filipinas in Manila in the same year.

Library Celebrates 20 Years with Flying Colors

Andres Bonifacio and the Katipuneros declared themselves and the country free from foreign rule on August 23, 1896 (officially). One hundred years later to the day, a small Filipiniana library opened in Makati City.

Since its inauguration in 1996, Filipinas Heritage Library has become a leading repository of valuable Philippine artifacts ranging from 17th century books and manuscripts to 20th century popular songs. In its 20 years as an institution, FHL has done more than repairing moth-eaten paper or indexing serials. The library has ventured into the digitization of its photographic and rare book collections and, recently, guerrilla papers from the Visayas and the sung epics of the Kalinga and Manobo.

Six Pinoy book designers on book covers

When book covers began to be more popularly used in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, they served mainly functional rather than artistic purposes. Aside from protecting the inner pages, covers such as leather imprints functioned as status symbols. Book production has gone a long way, with books becoming objects of mass consumption and covers playing a major role in the selling of books.

What sort of cover would, as food writer and teacher Ige Ramos describes it, make a book “either jump off the bookshelf screaming ‘Buy me!’ or sit quietly until the right person picks it up”? Musician and visual artist Datu Arellano puts it simply: a good book cover is “striking.” But more importantly, it “draws the reader in,” says designer Karl Castro, and “entices without giving too much of the content away.”
