Bobo Choses Series
Rita Puig-Serra Costa
Meet Rita Puig-Serra Costa, a Barcelona native born in 1985. She has no siblings but grew up with her close friends after her parents' early divorce. Since childhood, she has embraced life with an open heart and a creative sensibility.
Her academic path led her through Humanities and Comparative Literature, and her career began in publishing. At 30, she shifted gears into Graphic Design and Photography, driven by her love for books. Today, she manages personal projects, commercial work, and teaching. She recently has published a new book Anatomy of an Oyster, in collaboration with Italy's Witty Books. Amidst her multifaceted life, Rita treasures her role as a mom to her two-and-a-half-year-old son, Riu. Join us as we explore Rita's world through her thoughtfully curated recommendations.
