Catalogo de propagana taurina 1961. Imprenta-Litografia Ortega Valencia-Espana. Catalogo Muestrario. Carteles, Cartelitos, Cabeceras, Prospectos, Billetes.
Valencia 1960 - 4to. 29.5 by 23 cm. Unpaginated, 48 leaves in colorful wrappers. Setting this catalogue apart from earlier Ortega catalogues, all of which are scarce, is besides the shape, the facing pages from the specimen samples feature action line illustrations of various facets of the bullfight. Splashily colorful trade catalogue from lithographic printer specializing in cards, tickets, programs and posters dedicated to bullfights and local fairs and fiestas. Much of the content is brilliantly illustrated promotions of bullfights, with flyers, posters and the like tipped in, generally two or three pasted onto the same base leaf. Samples which in practice might have been printed in varying sizes, often much larger than in the catalogue, they capture the thrill, ritual and spirit of the sport. The pages with tickets and some other items are less eye candy but no less useful documents of the material paraphernalia of the sport, and reminders too of the manifold commercial aspects of an entertainment business. Quite scarce, with the only several copies surfacing on OCLC from other years. Light wear. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
