From the acclaimed author of the legendary PARTAGAS BOOK, Amir Saarony. This edition created exclusively for CubanHouseOfCigars.com and ONLY available here.
Amir Saarony is a Canadian graphic designer who has been involved in ventures in Havana for 20 years. He has worked there for foreign companies, including setting up the first Mac design & prepress studio in Cuba, helped humanitarian projects and cultural projects alike. After over 100 trips he wants to show the world that Havana is a great city with more than the stereotypical clichés to offer. Yes, there is music, rum, cigars and even beaches… but there is a city with millions of souls and millions of stories. The talent and energy are a force that needs to be seen, recognized and honored.
This is his second book sharing his love of Cuba. The first was Partagas El Libro, a biography of the iconic brand of Cuban cigars and the people and times that shaped it.

ABOUT THIS ART:
"Using a mixture of imagery, medium, and process referenced from masters who have spoken to and through me such as Warhol, Pollack and Picasso, combined with idiosyncratic cherrypicking of populist totems from fast food to cartoons, I am constructing running narratives of my many alter egos butting headfirst into the Grand Illusion, where cultural norms are questioned and exposed."
ABOUT RON ENGLISH:
Ron English is widely considered a seminal figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional wild-style lettering into clever statement and masterful trompe l’oeil based art. He has created illegal murals and billboards that blend stunning visuals with biting political, consumerist and surrealist statements, hijacking public space worldwide for the sake of art since the 1980s.
