The image of Emiliano Zapata has become globally recognizable through its prolific reproduction, used primarily as a political message to represent the defense of territory and the conquest of freedom. This book accompanied by a collection of sixteen prints aims to provide a visual experience which explores Zapatismo beyond the iconic image of Zapata, taking a critical look at the world through land and its relationship with the environment and community. The book also spans the political thoughts of Subcommandante Marcos, the impact of the Plan of Ayala, and Zapatismo during the Mexican revolution. Each print signed and numbered (7/32). Includes a handkerchief and a 1-liter bottle of Mezcal, said to be Zapata’s preferred mezcal.
