Prepared by Emilio Cueto, an expert on Cuban culture and an enthusiastic collector of Cuban memorabilia, the book also includes an essay introducing Mialhe's work in Cuba, a section focused on works inspired by Miahle, and a bibliography of works featuring views similar to the artist's. The book is filled with illustrations, several in color. 132 pp. Soft illustrated covers.
