Re: Cuban bookbinders

I also visited the Matanzas book artists Ediciones Vigia and am working on
mounting some images of their book covers on a web site so that the list
can see what Bob Muens was trying to explain. I just happened to be in
Cuba to speak at a conference on preservation at the same time that Bob
was there visiting.  I also took a gift of paper supplies that was well
received.  I had hoped to have the images scanned and up this weekend,

Also there is an interview with the director of the group in a book
published by University of Michigan Press, 1995 called "Bridges to Cuba"
edited by Ruth Behar, who has been visitng this group for some years and
who has a large collection of their editions.

As soon as the images are complete I will announce on the listserv, but
thought I would take this opportunity to say it was coming.
