Of central interest are the ways in which an enduring and timeless Mexican identity is forged and crystalized through historic and popular representations of iconic Mexican figures spanning all epochs and eras of Mexican history.

In some instances, minor elements that distract from the overall visual cohesiveness of an image have been removed. First edition limited to 10 copies (Item ID: 172436)
