Edited and with an Introduction by Adam Parfrey How a culture approaches and depicts death says a lot about the way it faces life. 'Muerte!' explores the lurid history of Mexico's fascination with death, starting with early mythological depictions of death as part of a constant cycle, to the colonial period's unhappy marriage of native views with Judeo-Christian fire and brimstone, to J G Posada's remarkable turn-of-the- century engravings. Includes an array of paintings and photos - many in full-colour - plus essays by Diego Rivera and Mexican scholars. Sensational!
