Handmade Book

Cuba cuban artist handmade book Sara Palacios Designs

This handmade book is about my childhood in Cuba.  I was born in  Elia, in the province of Camaguey.  I lived in that town until the age of 5 when my father bought a farm in the town of Ceiba Mocha, in the province of Matanzas.

Clara was our babysitter when we lived in Elia.  I always think of her, even though her image I cannot remember but her spirit is alive in my memories.

The photographs are from 1957.
