The skeleton at the feast : the Day of the Dead in Mexico by Elizabeth Carmichael( Book )

22 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

All over Mexico, early in November, families father to welcome the souls of the dead on their annual visit home. One of Mexico's most important festivals since prehispanic times, the Day of the Dead is an occasion for celebrating and feasting, cleaning and decorating graves, dancing and making music. In this unique work, the authors explore both the historic origins of this holiday and its colorful present-day celebrations in Mexico and the United States. Interviews with Mexican artists and crafters who provide goods for the festival -- from personalized sugar skulls to gigantic papier-mâché skeletons -- offer a fascinating glimpse into traditional and contemporary attitudes toward death and the dead. Lavishly illustrated with color and black-and-white photographs, "The Skeleton at the Feast" will be required reading for all who are interested in Mexican culture, art, and folklore. -- From publisher's description
