Steve Miller: "Cuban artist Alejandro Sainz cut seven linocuts for Red Hydra Press. Proofs of the cuts were sent to Wisconsin poet Mary Wehner, who created seven mysterious word swarms to accompany the images. This is a book that evokes the Malecón in Havana, as well as the lakes of the Midwest. It is simple and powerful."
