DELUXE EDITION (BOOK WITH SLIPCASE)
Limited to only 500 copies, each handcrafted Deluxe Edition book is signed and numbered and includes a beautiful slipcase box made in Italy, adding elegance and protection for years to come. This hardcover book measures 12″ (31cm) x 13″ (33cm) x 1.7″ (4.4cm) and contains over 300 photographs and stories. Designed by Michael, printed and handcrafted in Italy, this elegantly styled 348-page museum-quality photo book and slipcase combination makes a stunning and impressive presentation on any coffee table or in any bookcase.
The book’s color images are printed using a proprietary 7-color Spectra System to provide the most vibrant colors. The book’s black & white images are printed using a 2-black and 1-grey TriTone System, delivering superior b&w images with breathtaking results. Ultra-fine, dot-less, stochastic printing rounds out this magnificent work of art. Printing in 10-colors is a rarity among photography coffee table books. Thanks to the support of Heidelberg Press and Epple Inks in Germany, and Longo Press in Italy, we were able to create a truly stunning book. Many have said that we “set the bar.”
CURATED IMAGES AND STORYTELLING
Michael has curated his 24 trips to Cuba into a wonderful storytelling photo collection. Each beautifully crafted book is produced with stories in both English and Spanish, with Cuban friends helping guide the narrative with beautiful essays. Michael’s style of photography captures the “Soul of Cuba” in the most authentic, endearing, beautiful, and honest light. His images are so lively; they jump off the page. His stories are so compelling; that you are transported to Cuba with the turn of every page.
EXCELLENT REFERENCE BOOK
True, the book is a beautiful photographic storytelling journey through the lost-in-time island nation of Cuba. But it’s also filled with many historical references which are woven into the writings. For this reason, many prestigious University libraries and public libraries across the globe have purchased the book for their permanent collections.
