First Edition. Detailed analysis of the technical and aesthetic characteristics of prints by notable engraver Posada (b. Mexico 1852-1913) that illustrated numerous hand and street programs for theater, cinema and other public entertaining functions. The book recreates the historical context of the entertainment industry in Mexico at the end of the 19th century and early 20th century recalling a long lost marketing tradition of image and typography. All the programs came from a collection rescued by the author in 1976, just as they were going to be destroyed. Out-of-Print.
