The Art Of Cuban Bookmaking
UMKC alumna Jeanne Drewes spent years traveling to Cuba, partnering with Ediciones Vigía, an independent publishing company and collective of book artists in Matanzas, Cuba. Over that time, she amassed a sizeable collection of Cuban books, some of which she recently donated to the LaBudde Special Collections.
Ahead of her Sept. 27 talk, "Unbound: The Artistry of Cuban Bookmaking," Jeanne shares her experiences in Cuba, and the stories behind her interest in Cuban literature and culture.
