Fuster: Mas alla del lienzo / Beyond the canvas [title page]. En busca de un sueno / The quest for a dream [cover]

Estudio Fuster, Ciudad Habana. [2011], 73p., profuse color photography (well-produced) with a running text, softbound in 8.5-inch square wraps, absolutely clean and sound (faintest pressure marks to cover) about-fine copy. Fuster has drawn a fullpage image on the first blank, inscribed and signed it, datelining 2011. Fuster's village, Jaimanitas, not far from downtown Havana, is host to several blocks of housing that approach a cross between Watts Towers and Gaudi's cathedral. The mosaicist's homages to Picasso and Brancusi are quite apt. "The Project emerged," he says (p.21) "in 1994. First, it took off as a children's game of a sort. I began by fixing up my house and then from there on I continued by erecting an outer wall...certain neighbors told me that they would like to have on their houses the same things I had. Suddenly I became absorbed into an urban type of project, together with simple people...we already have about two or three blocks and seceral houses fixed according to my thing.."
