Barcelona. November, 2010

Readers of this blog know that I love manhole covers of many lands. This isn’t one. It’s an impostor, a plaque in the sidewalk outside the excellent pasty shop Escribà. And not only does it contain text in the intriguing Catalan language, but look at all those little dingbats or icons or whatever they are. A scale, some tools, a loaf of bread. Fascinating.
