Mexico accounts for one of the richest and most diverse folk arts in the world. The artisans´ mastery in different materials such as clay, wood, stone, textiles, metals, leather and plant fibers reflects an aura of genius and creativity that has been passed down by previous generations highlighting the wealth and tenacity of Mexican culture.

This new edition of the acclaimed Grand Masters of Mexican Folk Art, first published in 1999 and now expanded to more than 600 pages, pays tribute to the 180 artisans who composed the previous collection and celebrates the 400 artisans that have surfaced since.

The book does an exquisite job of capturing the essence of Mexican craftspersons and their meticulous techniques in more than 1,800 full-page portraits and colorful images of the works.
