The ‘plaquetes’ were greetings cards created by the ‘Filograf’ studio of designer Ricard Giralt Miracle. Sent out between 1953 and 1989 at christmas, or in the summer, they represent the synthesis of Giralt Miracle’s graphic world; his most personal, and gratifying work.

Employing texts by Cervantes, Dante Aligheri, Juan Ramón Jiménez, Maragall or Salvat Papasseit among others, the papers, inks, letter style, antique engravings, composition, illustration or envelope in which they were sent all sought to create a delicate balance between the lyrical, visual poetry, collage, photomontage, experimental typography, bibliography and the spirit of the vanguard; always employing clearly typographic techniques..

In the ‘plaquetes’, container and contents formally materialised in a relevant and distinctive body of work with respect to the rest of the graphic pioneers of the time; an exquisite conception of a graphic proposal realised first hand, thanks to the personal involvement of Giralt Miracle himself in the print works of the Filograf studio.
