Historia de una Curacion de Antigua de San Pablito Pahuatlan Pue
1978. Garcia Tellez, Alfonso. Historia de la Curacion de Antigua de San Pablito Pahuatlan Pue. Dated "10 de agosto de 1978." 28p, 29 mounted cut-out spirit figures (including cover). Accordion-folded handmade amate bark paper, hand lettered in ink. Original orange ribbon ties. Ca. 5 1/2 x 7 inches. Very good paperbound. Not signed by the artist, as are some copies. ** Subtitled "Ceremonia religiosa contra la brujeria." Describes the stages of an Otomoi ritualistic cure against witchcraft. Both an evocative document of indigenous Mexican Indian cultural practices, and a compelling piece of book art. (3 copies in WorldCat).
