One of five titles done by Alfonso Gecia Tellez and his family, done in the hundreds of copies over 40 years, all individually handmade, each one a unique item. Accordion bound with green ribbons.

In the late 1970s, Otomí artisans—including García Tellez—began making amate and muñecos to sell to tourists in the craft markets of Mexico. García Tellez is the most accomplished of just three Otomí artists to have produced bound books made from amate with muñecos pasted in. The books include handwritten descriptions, in Spanish, of the muñecos and the ceremonies in which they were used.

Price: $500.00
