Day of the Dead in Mexico City

Day of the Dead in Mexico - Mexico City(book cover).Written in English and Spanish, the third book of the series explores Day of the Dead in the metropolis of Mexico City, and also includes Mixquic and Morelos. The author shares vibrant and lively rituals that honor the dead, which are unique to that region.

More than 120 color photographs accompany a written description of the celebrations in Mexico City, Mixquic, and several towns of the state of Morelos. The book includes details of the tianguis (markets), of the special dishes prepared for offering, of the building of the altar and of the vigils at the cemeteries, which all create a vivid testimony of the strong influence of this pre-Hispanic tradition.

“Throughout this book, Mary Andrade renders us a visual account that allows the reader to discover and enjoy— through altars and offerings — the multitude of colors, foods, and artistic creations of the Mexican people. She takes us by the hand through her spendid photographs and her inviting narrative to witness the uniqueness of the Day of the Dead celebrations in Mexico City, Mixquic, and various towns in the State of Morelos,” writes Maria Esther Schumacher.

The book includes several poems by Spanish poet Julie Sopetran.
