Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A truly popular art form, the glamorous paintings of Mexican calendar girls have a long and fascinating history as advertisements, enticements, and emblems of Mexican cultural heritage and pride. The result of years of research, this playful and informative book reproduces more than 150 vibrantly colorful calendar images, plus archival photographs and other materials that illuminate their creation. A fully bilingual text gives an overview of the calendars' social and cultural history, along with biographies of the talented artists who created them. Also including a foreword by the renowned Mexican cultural critic Carlos Monsiv is, "Mexican Calendar Girls" presents this popular and delightful art as never before.
