New Online: “Found in Cuba: Handmade Books Illustrate Cuban Poetry Through Repurposed Materials”
Ediciones Vigía, a publishing house in the town of Matanzas, Cuba, began to create handbills and invitations in 1985 for local cultural events. Now a collective of artists and editors who produce books by hand, they thrive today in the same house on the Plaza Vigía, or Watchtower Square. The Special Collections Gallery at the Jean and Alexander Heard Libraries displayed a selection of these handmade books through March of this year. These works now can be enjoyed again in the online exhibit Found in Cuba: The Ingenuity and Creativity of Ediciones Vigía.
