In memoriam: Jaume Vallcorba

Jaume Vallcorba Plana, editor, philologist and passionate professor, perfectionist humanist (and, fortunately, imperfect human being)… Authentic value of Catalan literature and cultures (F Serès).

He combined the reedition of Central European, Catalan and Spanish classics (Ausiàs March, Joseph Roth, Stefan Zweig, JV Foix, Francesc Trabal, Eugeni d’Ors, Martí de Riquer, Montaigne, Chateaubriand,  Schnitzler, Hölderlin, Kafka, Burton, Lord Byron… ), updating continuously with the publication of the nouvelle vague of Spanish literature of the 80’s (Sergi Pàmies, Quim Monzó, Ferran Torrent, Francesc Serés, Empar Moliner, Gabriel Galmes, Ramon Solsona, Javier Cercas …).

We agreed with him in how to understand the role of the editor, no matter it was books, design or music. Propose, create, introduce in the market to enriche life quality, stimulating the reader and the user. To make the books (and products) empathize with the collections that complete a catalog. Working with the authors to achieve a maximum, suggesting, proposing, improving to accomplish success. With invisible discretion, perserverance, tenacity and responsibility.

Merely, edition as a job in which intelectual and handmade work converge with business vision in communication, distribution and sales.

Ever friend of mobles 114 and its products, we join all its relatives in our condolences.
