Iridescent Cuba is a unique book of acrylic paint marker drawings. The experimental calligraphy appears on thin tracing paper mounted on gampi paper, lending an effervescent, ephemeral air to each of the drawings. Cuba is one of the grandfathers of the San Francisco Mission School, supplying the aesthetic styles that formed what may be the only coherent new school of American art since the New York painting scene of the 1980s.

The book was designed by Marshall Weber and bound by Metropolitan Museum of Art Conservation Fellow Sophia Kramer on boards with pink cloth.

12 pages, 8.5 x 11.25,” accordion fold binding, acrylic paint markers.
