painted walls of mexico : paredes pintadas de mexico

painted-walls-of-mexico If you've traveled in Mexico, then you are probably familiar with the colorful walls painted with advertisements, political campaigns, art and illustration or maybe even store hours. It's one of my favorite graphic elements of the country. This book, Painted Walls of Mexico, is a glorious collection of those images. It is a collaboration of writer/editor, Phyllis La Farge and photographer, Magdalena Caris -- with a guest preface by poet and novelist, Homero Aridjis.
