The quality of the postcards are 100% exceptional. They bring back the same amazement and awe I had when standing before the acutal murals. I didn't mail any out, but kept them all. My favorite mural is Democracracy, which is as powerfully depicted in the book as in the actual mural in Bellas Artes. This book will aways be a treasure on my bookshelf.

An excellent collection of fine art postcards that focus on the Muralist painting movement in Mexico. In keeping with their relative importance and popularity the emphasis is on Rivera with a few extra cards covering seminal work by Orozco and Siqueiros. Viva La Revolution...

4.0 out of 5 stars Colorful postcards March 11 2014

This book comes with 4 postcards per page. They are printed on glossy cardstock which makes them look nice. Some of the murals on the postcards are not the whole mural but just certain portions of the mural. The back of the postcards are not glossy, but matte. The back of each card contains the name of the artist and mural name in small black print on the bottom left corner. Along the middle of the back of the card, running from top to bottom it has a line of small black print typed sideways which splits the card in half and describes the title of the book and publisher.
The postcards come in a book style with 4 cards per page. They have perforated edges where they can be separated from the book and from the other cards. This leaves perforated edges on all cards. I plan on using these postcards so I will cut off the perforated edges using my paper cutter. The edges that are not joined together do not have the perforated edge and are smooth and clean.
The murals printed on the postcards are:

Diego Rivera: Corn, Peasant woman with ears of corn, Night of the poor, The Totonaca Civilization:The offering, Sunday Dream at Alameda park, Night of the wealthy, Creation:woman, The agitator, History and perspective of Mexico:Repression, Revolution:Germination, Conquest, Virgin earth, Fecund earth, Santa Anita promenade, Revolution:Fructification

Jose Clemente Orozco: Maternity, The working class, The trench

David Alfaro Sisqueiros: From Porfirio's Dictatorship to revolution, New Democracy, For the complete safety of all Mexicans at work, Cuauhtemoc reborn:torture
