This day of festivity sees prints, skeletal artefacts, toys, cakes and sweets sold on the streets and ritualistic offerings made to dead relatives. This collection of 22 large-format postcards released to coincide with two major exhibitions in London, brings together images that mix vitality with morbidity. Produced by the great Mexican printmakers Manuel Manilla and J.G.Posada these images include skeletons featured in everyday acts, such as drinking, flirting, preaching and working.
