Originally published on the 150th anniversary of Posada's birth (1852–2002), this book features 121 of the finest works by the great popular engraver and relief-etcher who inspired not only the Mexican muralists but also the international Surrealist movement as well as poster artists and radical cartoonists from all over the world. Also included here are excerpts from classic texts on the artist by Jean Charlot, Jose Clemente Orozco, Frida Kahlo, André Breton, and others, as well as statements by poets and artists of more recent vintage—Dennis Brutus, Rikki Ducornet, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Robin D. G. Kelley, Franklin Rosemont, Joseph Jablonski, Ted Joans, and many more.
“Posada, as great and prolific as Goya and Callot, was inexhaustibly inventive—a wellspring of creativity. He was the interpreter of the joys and sorrows, the anguish and aspirations of the Mexican people, a precursor of Zapata and Flores Magon.”—Diego Rivera
