Mexican Indian Folk Designs: 252 Motifs from Textiles (Dover Pictorial Archive)

This fascinating book is the product of intensive scholarly research, its exacting illustrations based on choice examples of Mexican Indian textiles in many different museums and private collections. Incorporating abstract and geometric forms as well as highly stylized images of flowers, plants, animals, birds, and humans, the patterns represent more than 20 major Mexican Indian cultures.Among the designs are a two-faced feathered serpent from the Huichol culture, an allover pattern dominated by horizontal zigzags woven by the Otomí, and a flower and leaf design from the Tepehua. The Huasteco people are represented by a bold motif featuring prancing animals with bushy tails; a Nahuatl design depicts a lion with a flower in his mouth; while an elegant curvilinear Mazatec motif features flowers, vines, and birds. Other peoples whose art is represented include the Tarahumara, Tepecano, Mestizo, Zapotec, Mixteco, and Cuicatec. In the bold, startling designs originated by these cultures are primal links to the imagery of other cultures and traditions, centuries old and worldwide.Artists, designers, and craftspeople will value this modestly priced collection as a source of striking and unusual royalty-free designs for inspiration and practical use; anyone interested in Mexican Indian ...

 - Alebrijes Mexican folk art colouring book - Fantastic & strange Creatures: The Magical World of Alebrijes
Alebrijes Mexican folk art colouring book - Fantastic & strange Creatures: The Magical World of Alebrijes

Welcome to the magical world of Alebrijes Alebrijes are legendary, brightly coloured, imaginary creatures which take elements from many different animals, such as cats, fish, dragons, and dogs with bird’s feet and bat’s wings. Alebrijes were first created by Pedro Linares López, an artist from Mexico. The story begins as far back as 1936 when Linares fell terribly ill and while falling in and out of consciousness he dreamed many incredible, amazing dreams. In these dreams, he found himself walking in a forest, and came across some strange, fantastic creatures that kept chanting, “alebrije, alebrije, alebrije”. In Spanish, “alebrijes” is pronounced “al - ay - bree - hez”. Pedro was very lucky, and made a miraculous recovery. When he became strong and healthy again, he decided to bring the creatures he met in his dream to life in paintings and sculptures. The original sculptures of alebrijes were made of paper mache, clay and carved wood, brightly painted by hand in all shapes and sizes. Alebrijes are fun, and in this Alebrijes colouring book 2 of the series there are 40 exciting original alebrijes designs for you to colour at your leisure. Once you’ve coloured all of the alebrijes in this book, you could even try to dream new ones, and make imaginary alebrijes o...

 - Design in California and Mexico, 1915-1985: Found in Translation
Design in California and Mexico, 1915-1985: Found in Translation

This groundbreaking book looks at the influence California and Mexico have had on each other’s architecture and design in the 20th century. The histories of Mexico and the United States have been intertwined since the 18th century, when both were colonies of European empires. America’s fascination with Mexican culture emerged in the 19th century and continues to this day. In turn, Mexico looked to the U.S. as a model of modernity, its highways and high-rises emblematic of "The American Way of Life." Exploring the design movements that defined both places during the 20th century, this book is arranged into four sections— Spanish Colonial inspiration, Pre-Hispanic Revivals, Folk Art and Craft Traditions, and Modernism. Featured are essays by leading scholars and illustrations of more than 300 works by architects and designers including Richard Neutra, Luis Barragán, Charles and Ray Eames, and Clara Porset. The word translation originally meant "to bring or carry across." The constant migration between California and Mexico has produced cultures of great richness and complexity, while the transfers of people and materials that began with centuries-old trade routes continue to resonate in modern society, creating synergies that are "found in translation."

 - Mexican Masks and Puppets: Master Carvers of the Sierra De Puebla
Mexican Masks and Puppets: Master Carvers of the Sierra De Puebla

In the Mexican states of Puebla and Veracruz, old masked dances have survived in isolated mountain regions. These dances include wonderful masks of humans and animals, masks with beautiful, comic, or wicked faces. Created by Indigenous master carvers, mascareros, these masks and puppets appear during religious fiestas. Over 700 vivid color photos reveal these masks and puppets in all their glory. The thoroughly researched text answers the questions about who made these beautiful works of art, who these dance characters are, and the nature of the religion they represent. The Spanish conquerors strove to convert the Indian inhabitants of Mexico to Christianity. However, these converts secretly retained important deities from earlier times to accompany Christian elements, creating a poetic blend of beliefs. Given that these indigenous peoples have suffered many injustices, the masks, puppets, and dance dramas reflect many unresolved societal tensions along with veiled wishes for divine justice.
