Inspired by the artistic mechanism of pastiche, this work offers a riso-printed, collaged journey through print history, specifically the heydays of comic book culture in the U.S. and Latin America and early 20th century advertisement, with appearances by pop culture icons such as Betty Boop, Snow White, Droopy, and Felix the Cat, with occasional appearances of motifs and icons from earlier print cultures such as Hokusai’s wave and the Wound Man from the medical textbooks of the Renaissance; the result is a nostalgic, ironic and humorous trip down print memory lane, text in Spanish (some in English), hard cover, 21,5 x 13 cm, 44 not numbered pages, numbered ed/150, Mexico City 2018
