By the time it reopens, the eight-month makeover of the centenary Gran Via subway station will have made it worthy of celebrating its 100th anniversary with – as the old song goes – rockets, bells and poetry!

Books are no longer simply the words that fill their pages. They are objects of beauty that can be read and enjoyed, and then displayed proudly on a bookshelf or coffee table in one’s home. This is clear walking through the Madrid Book Fair.
