ENGLISH AND SPANISH EDITION!
Partagas El Libro, a biography of the iconic brand of Cuban cigars and the people and times that shaped it.
A new book on one of the most iconic names within the cigar world – Partagas – has been released. The book contains over 270 pages of information and never before published images from the National Archives of Cuba, the archives of Partagas, the Tobacco Museum in Havana and private and public collections around the world.
It is a truly remarkable study of one of the most famous and well respected cigar brands in the world and is comprehensive in its scope. It begins with Jaime Partagas y Rabell’s decision to immigrate to Cuba on 29th July 1831 and takes us right up to modern times. A fascinating look at the rich history of the Cuban cigar industry through the eyes of one of its most famous names…
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.

Escaparate Habanos Photograph Frame
This frame features the legendary photograph taken at the Partagas Factory in 2000.
Between making and packing, the cigars are taken to the conditioning room or "Escaparate". Here in cedar lined drawers, they are left to rest while they shed the excess moisture that was gained in the rolling process. They are meant to stay for minimum one week, however, the longer they stay there, the better.
The Escaparate room is often referred to as the "treasury". It is here that the wealth of a factory is stored. The cigars were stored in bundles of 50, known as media reeds, or "half wheels".
This photo was taken in the Partagas Factory, Escaparate, 2000/. La Habana, Cuba
