From prize-winning poet


Father Gilbert

Featuring the artworks of eminent Basque artist Vicente Jáuregui and of Louella Garnado Centina.

Diptych/Díptico is the first bilingual poetry collection by prize-winning poet Gilbert Luis R. Centina III. The book was published in collaboration with avant-garde poet Antonio Aguirre and multimedia artist Vicente Jáuregui, two of Spain's most talented contemporary artists. Antonio wrote the introduction for the book while Vicente provided the artwork used to illustrate most of the poems throughout the 138-page poetry collection. Prolific Spanish author Josemaría Alonso Alonso de Linaje and Spanish editor and educator Ana Maria Romo de Miguel wrote the prologue and epilogue, respectively. Guillermo Gómez Rivera, the most respected Filipino writer in Spanish for decades and academic director of the Academia Filipina de la Lengua Española of the Real Academia Española, has praised the work as a literary triumph.
