Fiesta: Days of the Dead & Other Mexican Festivals

Mexico has a vast range of annual festivals; several commemorate national events, but most are religious or spiritual in inspiration. Drawing on her extensive travels in Mexico and the wide-ranging collections of the British Museum, Chloe Sayer gives a contemporary context to these colorful annual celebrations and shows how these festivities are uniquely Mexican. Vivid full-color images of an amazing array of objects, plus photos of people making and using them to celebrate an intriguing variety of local festivities, illustrate the text.
