Jose Guadalupe Posada

The broadsides produced by the Arroyo publishing house were loose sheets that covered a variety of human interest events such as love stories, murders, suicides, bullfight gorings, infamous criminals and folklore heroes.  Topical, brightly colored and quickly produced, they can be seen as more of a people’s history that addressed popular culture issues of the day filled in the gaps between larger historical and political events.
