Mexican printmaker Jose Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913) created a massive variety of material (broadsheets, cards, advertisements, posters, etc) which largely represented a defense of the common man and a manifestation of the horrible and gruesome events of the day. His most notable imagery comes from his Calaveras (skeletons) celebrating the "Day of the Dead". Calaveras often represent effigies of living people depicted as skeletons going about their daily activities. These are often humorous and playful in a way that helps bridge this world with the beyond. This set features 2 alphabet fonts and a set of 60 extras.
