Barquitos del San Juan: Revista de los niños, año 13, número 23

Notes: [87] pages. 11-1/4 by 8-1/4 (oblong). An edition of 200 copies.

This issue of the Ediciones Vigía magazine for children has, on the front cover, a scene of a person in a row boat reading. The back cover shows the same person sleeping in the boat. The design, assembled from printed paper collaged onto cloth mounted to the wrappers, incorporates an oar made from wood and a string of beads described on the colophon as a small Elegguá necklace (a piece of Santeria costume made from alternating red and white beads). Some of the interior illustrations are handcolored. The text is photocopied on white paper.

The content is mostly poetry. The pergaminito (little broadside) is a poem about the Santeria deity Elegguá. This is a key issue of the periodical and perhaps the most widely studied for its focus on Afro-Cuban culture.
