Poems. Text printed primarily on coarse brown paper; grained sand-colored paper and white and blue bond paper are also used. Brown tissue-paper endpapers.

Title and author name, and illustrations, are printed on an artistically cut sheet of white bond paper attached only at its left edge to the front wrapper; the word Retazos in the title is on a strip of heavy blue paper glued to the top of this. Navy blue and gray strings are looped vertically around some of the pages and tied; blue string is also woven into a cutout affixed to back wrapper, with a free end attached to an unaffixed tag bearing the copy no. Some hand coloring. Limited ed. of 200 copies. Part of a series of handmade books published by Ediciones Vigía.
