Not on view
A portfolio of 30 metal-plate engravings by Posada accompanied by an introduction to the artist by the publisher Vanegas Arroyo (in Spanish and English). The prints are housed in a purple board cover with title, publication details with an image of a calavera having a drink. The title informs that there are '36 prints' but in reality there are only 30, a number that tallies with the index of titles at the back. The year 1943 is the publication date of the portfolio. The prints by Posada were made much earlier and were reprinted for this project.
