Collection consists of broadsides, portraits, chapbooks, and restrikes. These include songbooks, single-sheet corridos (popular ballads), how-to booklets on writing love letters and cooking, books of predictions, gameboards, lithographic portraits of bullfighters, devotional texts and images, and children's literature. All are illustrated by Jose Guadalupe Posada or, in some cases by Manuel Manilla and other (unidentified) artists. The restrikes were made c. 1940-1944. These are prints of the illustration blocks without text. Subjects range from humorous to didactic, romantic to religious and political. Posada's signature "calaveras" (humorous skeletal figures) are represented, as are sensational crime and supernatural subjects, and popular songs printed by Mexico City's leading penny press publisher Antonio Vanegas Arroyo. Print processes include etching, type-metal engraving, and lithography. These prints were originally collected by Mexican art historian Fernando Gamboa
