"Museo Salinas" [sold]

[sold] Disgraced Mexican President Carlos Salinas has been gleefully derided in every possible form of popular art - masks, candles, dolls, paper mache, t-shirts, clay, pinatas, even Salinas as chupacabra. Vicente Razo has assembled them all in his Mexico City apartment, called it the Official Museo Salinas, and catalogued them in this little gem of a book. Essays in Spanish and English by Carlos Monsivais and others. Anyone interested in Folk Art or Politics (or both !) would enjoy this book. 7.5" x 9", paperback, 66pgs., lots of color photos. (Maybe a useful template for a collection of memorabilia from our present US administration ?)20
