Cuban Book Artists, one more time



There have been several discussions on this list about a group of book
artists in Cuba named Ediciones Vigia.  Contributions were taken to them
in May.  Both Bob Muens and I sent out messages about them.  I promised to
mount images of some of the covers on my website and have only now been
able to accomplish that.  You can view this very small selection at

I quote a paragraph from an interview with the director of the group taken
from "Bridges to Cuba" edited by Ruth Behar.  Ruth is trying to arrange a
visit to the United States for several members of this group in the fall
of this year.

Erin Loftus and I will do a talk and presentation about the
group at the Potomac Chapter of the Guild of BookWorkers in September.
Erin, a conservator in the DC area, was also in Cuba in May and visited
Matanzas with me.

I am also working with a number of people to do translations so that these
books can be shared with a broader audience.

If you are interested in contributing to another shipment of
materials, please contact
me or Bob Muens.
