Here's another illustrated book. It's titled "Unstill Life / Naturaleza Viva". It's an anthology of LatinAmerican poetry published by Harcourt Brace in 1969. Each section is divided by poet (see 2nd picture), with a brief bio and a couple of poems by that author. Each poem is tranlsated into English (from Spanish) and they're shown side by side.
The wood block prints by Antonio Frasconi correspond loosely to the text. I like how they're incorporated to the English & Spanish translations (see bottom picture).
It's an excellent collection, edited by Mario Benedetti (who I'm a big fan of), and the illustrations give it a special touch.
