Day of the Dead: José Guadalupe Posada. El dia los muertos book.


An explosive collection of amazing contemporary lowbrow and kustom art inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead. Showcasing 47 international artists from the USA, Mexico, Europe and Japan. Among those featured are Sergio Mora, Rhode Montijo, Dr. Lakra, Laurie Lipton, Brian Ewing, Fudemae and José Quintero. Terrifying and intriguing in equal measure, and covering the origins of this amazingly vibrant genre, The Day of the Dead is an eye-watering feast of visual inspiration.
