Funny Bones tells the story of how the amusing calaveras--skeletons performing various everyday or festive activities--came to be. They are the creation of Mexican artist José Guadalupe (Lupe) Posada (1852-1913). In a country that was not known for freedom of speech, he first drew political cartoons, much to the amusement of the local population but not the politicians. He continued to draw cartoons throughout much of his life, but he is best known today for his calavera drawings. They have become synonymous with Mexico's Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) festival. Juxtaposing his own art with that of Lupe's, author Duncan Tonatiuh brings to light the remarkable life and work of a man whose art is beloved by many but whose name has remained in obscurity. The book includes an author's note, bibliography, glossary, and index.… (més)

Primary-Middle. This book focuses on the life of Jose Guadalupe Posada, his career, and how he inspired the traditional art style of Calaveras. It's a great informational text on art history and also Mexican history from the 1850's to the early 1900's. This would be great for art history, Mexican history, or tel Dia de los Muertos.

Mexican expatriate author and artist Duncan Tonatiuh, whose picture-books include folkloric retellings such as The Princess and the Warrior: A Tale of Two Volcanoes, and biographies such as Danza!: Amalia Hernández and El Ballet Folklórico de México, turns in this informative and beautiful book to the story of José Guadalupe (Lupe) Posada. Born in 1852 in Aguascalientes, Mexico, Posada would grow up to become a printer, engraver and political cartoonist. Although some experts think he may have produced 20,000 images in his long career, he is best remembered for his calaveras - his illustrations using skeletons. These offered social and political commentary, and some of them became iconic images associated with Mexico's Day of the Dead celebrations. Tonatiuh discusses Posada's life, explains the various artistic processes he used - engraving, etching, lithography - and concludes with an extensive afterword giving more information...

Tonatiuh continually makes the point, in Funny Bones: Posada and His Day of the Dead Calaveras, that Posada's art is better known than Posada himself, and that is certainly true in my case! I didn't think, picking up the book, that I had ever encountered Posada before. I don't celebrate Day of the Dead, and am not particularly familiar with the artwork associated with it. Imagine my surprise then, when reading this book, to discover Posada's calavera of Madero, a work known as The Calavera Maderista:



This is an image I know well, as it appeared on the copy of The Milagro Beanfield War that I read and reread, as a young adolescent. This discovery was a welcome surprise for me, and I am glad to know a little bit more about the artist who created this work. Leaving that aside, I found the narrative here engaging and informative, and greatly appreciated the discussion of the different artistic methods used by Posada. I also appreciated that the illustrations here incorporated some of Posada's work, together with Tonatiuh's own paintings. Recommended to young art lovers, and to children who are curious about some of the Day of the Dead traditions they may have encountered. ( )

"Funny Bones" is a book about a Mexican artist named Jose Guadalupe Posada, who created political cartoons of the calaveras skeletons. These drawings have become related to Mexico's Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. This would be a good book to read to kids around the actual Day of the Dead. ( )

Calaveras, which are skeletons that are often depicted in a humorous way, are a Day of the Dead tradition. Jose Lupe Posada is credited with the popularity of these figures. Posada's introduction into printmaking and his work's rise to popularity is shared. Posada, or Don Lupe as people began to call him, started drawing calaveras and short poems for the Day of the Dead. Some of the prints made fun of political figures. The reader is given the chance to analyze some of Posada's calavera prints to think about what he was trying to say. Tonatiuh's book allows us to learn more about the Day of the Dead tradition of calaveras and the man who popularized these prints. ( )
