Authentic Mexican "Day of the Dead" festival imagery from authentic Nineteenth and early Twentieth Century poster art. Powerful and direct woodcuts and grim poster art. 
Calaveras - comic but grotesque figures in many different poses - politicians, street scenes, skeleton cyclists, puppets figures, lovers, all depicted as skeletons. Images include wrestlers, skeleton weddings, dancing, winged skeletons, puppets and priests. Many works are featured by José Guadalupe Posada, who used the calaveras theme and tradition as a visual form of social and political satire - caricature and comic themes abound in these images.
