Original Title: Viva Zapata! 20 Grabados
Pronunciation: Viva Zapata! 20 Grabados
TYPE: Folio/Portfolio
DIMENSIONS: 48 x 33 cm.
COMPONENTS: Folio. 1 leave, 20 plates
CONDITION: Covers damaged, with some losses in the upper section of the front cover. Interior very clean. Good condition.
NOTES: It´s certainly not an easy find. I can´t find any copy currently for sale, and there are only 9 copies at institutions (according to Worldcat) and no auction records in the US.

Personally, I had seen some loose plates before, but it is the first time that I see the complete set with the covers. It's a shame that the covers are somewhat damaged, but the plates are basically intact.

Artist Information: José Guadalupe Posada (February 2, 1852 – January 20, 1913) was a Mexican political printmaker and engraver whose work has influenced many Latin American artists and cartoonists because of its satirical acuteness and social engagement. He used skulls, calaveras, and skeletons to make political and cultural critiques. Among his famous works was La Catrina. In spite of his varied and popular work, Posada was not as recognized as other contemporary artists. It wasn't until his death that his aesthetic as a true folk artist was recognized. This was largely thanks to Diego Rivera, who gave great publicity to his work. Yet even by that point in time, countless masses across Mexico would have immediately recognized his popular imagery. In fact, many illiterate citizens relied upon Posada's artistic renderings of current events and political messages to gauge the sociopolitical climate of their era. And an even greater audience viewed his signature calaveras—the iconic images of grinning skeletons commonly associated with the Mexican Day of the Dead—as deeply rooted cultural symbols which doubled as timely social reportage.
