Due date: November 2016. Publisher's description: A la plaza con Fidel (To the plaza with Fidel) is doubly rare among Cuban photobooks: relatively few photobooks were produced in Cuba after the Revolution, and A la plaza con Fidel is also notable for its unique subject matter. Photographed between 1959 and 1966 and published in 1970 by leading Cuban photographer and cinematographer "Mayito" (Mario Garcia Joya, born 1938), the book focuses on Fidel Castro's supporters and the festive atmosphere of the Revolution. Castro would mark important moments of the Revolution, when either revelry or reassurance was called for, with public addresses delivered in Havana's Plaza de la Revolucion; "to the plaza with Fidel" became a refrain of the Revolution. The 21st volume in Errata Editions' Books on Books series, this edition of A la plaza con Fidel presents this little-known book in its entirety, with essays by photography curator Leandro Villaro.
