Summary: The gorgeous black and white line art inside this hefty little book instantly caught my eye. These linocut drawings were not the regular loteria images. They were modern adaptations, made with painstaking detail (think of a turn-of-the-millenium, wired Posada) and showing a distinctive sense of humor and pathos. The poetry, commissioned especially for the drawings, also showed a fresh and modern take on the icons of Mexicanismo and Chicanismo."- Frontera Magazine Table of Contents Introduction The Lottery The Hunchback The Armadillo Death The Fly The Bell The Horse The Press The Smokers The Pear The Guitar The Little Saint The Rooster The Bicycle The Archangel The Palm Tree The Hermit The Bat The Witch The Friends The Cactus God The Hand The Fruit The Pig The Glutton The Flight The Ostrich The Fall The Virgin The Tree The Star The Bottle The Drunkards The Scorpion Corn Fire The Clown Vengeance The Prodigal Son The Soldier The Hunter The Mermaid The Lion The Wrestler The Wetback The Immigration Officer Feet The Railroad The Ladder The Serpent The Dancer The Scissors Eve Adam The Plague Hell The Giant The Musicians The Poet The Devil The Goat The Victim The Flag The Canoe The Circus The Camel Bad Government Sadness The Sun The Fish The Wound The Chair The Worker The Airplane The Trap The Heart The Sword The Comet The Beggars The Cat The Horseman The Cow The Magician Torture The Absent One The Crab Heaven The Lizard The Sandals The Knife The Hen The Inspired One The Deer The Zapatista The Dog The Old Man The Monkey The Hanged One The Eagle The Bath The Guardian Angel The World The Rose
