This book, originally published in 1930, is a facsimile edition of the first monograph devoted to the great Mexican illustrator and engraver Jose Guadalupe Posada (1852-1913). It reproduces more than 400 prints from Posada s vast production, collected by Pablo O Higgins from those that could be located and identified at the time. The images of these high-spirited, at times macabre, broadsheets include the famous calaveras, or skeleton caricatures, along with illustrations for songs, corridos (traditional ballads), and religious prayers. With their striking visual qualities, they enriched the tradition of the popular Mexican print. In addition to the images, the book includes an introduction by Frances Toor, the legendary editor of the magazine Mexican Folkways, and an essay by Diego Rivera on Posada. 406 engravings
