Hecho en Cuba: Cinema in the Cuban Graphics

Published by Silvana Editoriale
Edited by Luigi Bardellotto. Text by Alberto Barbera, Jorge R. Bermudez, Alessandra Riccio, Luciano Del Sette.

A vivid compilation of Cuban film posters from the 1950s to the present. "A visual indulgence of typography."

The film poster is one of the best-known forms of Cuban art. Hecho en Cuba: Cinema in the Cuban Graphics is a compilation of Cuban film posters from the 1950s through the present, and an exploration of the designers who created them.
The bold sensibility and visual inventiveness of post-revolutionary Cuban graphic design makes it instantly recognizable. But the designers contributing to this new style were still individual artists, bringing their different backgrounds to the task of creating a new visual identity for a post-revolutionary nation. With lavishly illustrated sections on Eladio Rivadulla, Raùl Martinez, Eduardo Muñoz Bachs, Antonio Reboiro, Antonio Pérez Gonzáles (Ñiko), Renè Azcuy, Alfredo Rostgaard, Rafael Morante, Raùl Oliva, Julio Eloy Mesa and Jorge Dima, Hecho en Cuba brings out the individual design sensibilities that shaped an extraordinary graphic culture, where the poster became the populist art form par excellence.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Metropolis Magazine

Hecho en Cuba argues that Cuban art finds some of its most characteristic expression in cinema posters...Pairing essays and profiles with some of the most exemplary works of more than half a century, the result is a visual indulgence of typography and imagery of considerable authority.
