Overview


Explore the beauty and majesty of Havana
 
"Captures in beautiful photos the soul of a great capital."--Jaime Suchliki
 
"Offers a nostalgic look at the Cuban capital's glorious architectural legacy."--Alfredo José Estrada
 
"A concise look at one of the oldest and most important cities of this hemisphere. Its combination of excellent graphic and appropriate historical data makes this book an attractive and readable work. It is indeed an important contribution to the history of Cuba and of that city."--Juan M. Clark
 
Havana has always been a dynamic city, and its unique architecture and history make it one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The closed nature of contemporary Cuban society both has frozen and preserved much of Havana’s urban design and has prevented many tourists from experiencing the wide range of beautiful buildings and public spaces found in the island nation's visually stunning capital.
 
In Havana Forever, Kenneth Treister's sublime photographs capture the multiple faces of one of the world's great cities. Along with coauthors Felipe Préstamo and Raul Garcia, he explores not only Havana's unique architecture but also its culture, people, urban plazas and parks, pedestrian environment, monuments, landmarks, food, music, dance, colonial history, and idiosyncrasies from cigars to the Tropicana Supper Club.
 
For anyone who's ever lived in or visited Havana, or desires to go, Havana Forever is the next best thing to being there, and a must-have as a prelude for a meaningful visit.
