French artist JR, whose signature black and white photographic murals have been pasted all around the world, collaborated with Cuban-American artist José Parlá to create the upcoming book "Wrinkles of the City." The duo photographed and recorded 25 seniors who have lived through the Cuban revolution, pasting their portraits alongside calligraphic writings on the walls of crumbling Havana buildings as a means to magnify their history in an urban setting. The book, which comes in at 160 pages covering the project, is set to come out in December. There's also a big book launch party and screening of an accompanying documentary during Art Basel at the Standard Hotel, who are publishing the book. Below, see some images from the book featuring the murals.
