Barcelona Pop-Up map
I personally absolutely love the pop-up map series. If you haven't used one before, these maps pop up and down instantly and can fit in your pocket. Very useful and inexpensive.
Barcelona & Catalonia Eyewitness guide
The Eyewitness guides are also excellent and the Barcelona version is no different. The eyewitness guide has excellent graphical images and the book is very informative. This book is well worth buying and you cannot go wrong with this guide. It can be a hard call between this and the other books listed on this page. If you buy two of them you should pretty much have all angles covered.
