    About GRACIELA ITURBIDE (extracts from Wikipedia and Other Internet Sites):

    ******Graciela Iturbide, b.1942, is a Mexican photographer. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is included in the permanent collections of many major museums, including MOMA, LACMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Centre Georges Pompidou.

    In 1978, Iturbide was commissioned by the Ethnographic Archive of the National Indigenous Institute of Mexico to work on a series about Mexico's Seri Indians who lived in the Sonoran desert along the Arizona/Mexico border. She was in Punta Chueca for a month and a half working on the series. There were about 500 people within the community. It was while working for this series that her photograph called "Mujer Ángel" was taken. The image depicts a Seri woman walking towards a cave carrying a boombox, looking as if she could fly off into the desert sky.******

    SCARCE, this limited edition of only 1000 copies quickly went out-of-print. It has become very hard-to-find.

    About JUAN O'GORMAN and his CENTRAL LIBRARY MOSAIC (from Wikipedia):

    ******Juan O'Gorman's most celebrated work due to its creativity, construction technique, and dimensions, are the four thousand square meters murals covering the four faces of the building of the Central Library at Ciudad Universitaria at UNAM. These murals are mosaics made from millions of colored stones that he gathered all around Mexico in order to be able to obtain the different colors he needed. The north side pictures Mexico's pre-Hispanic past and the south facade its colonial one, while the east wall depicts the contemporary world, and the west shows the university and contemporary Mexico.

    "From the beginning, I had the idea of making mosaics of colored stones in the walls of the collections, with a technique in which I was already well experienced. With these mosaics the library would be different from the other buildings of Ciudad Universitaria, and it would be given a particular Mexican character."******

    About the CENTRAL LIBRARY (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Central Library of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) holds one of the largest collections in Mexico. The building is covered with the mural Historical Representation of Culture, created by the Mexican artist Juan O'Gorman. His unique masterpiece has made the Central Library one of the most iconic buildings in modern Mexico. In July 2007, UNESCO proclaimed the Central Library, along with the Central Campus of the University City, as a World Heritage site.

    The four thousand square foot mural is made out of thousands of colored stones, something that never had been done at that scale. According to the artist, in each of the four walls that make up the surface of the mosaic, he represented three fundamental historical facets of Mexican culture: the pre-Hispanic era, the Spanish colonial era, and the modern age.******

    About GEORGE H. MORRILL COMPANY (from the Norwood Historical Society):

    ******George H. Morrill Company made ink for the printing industry. Founded in 1845 in Massachusetts by Samuel Morrill who invented and produced a superior ink compared to what had been on the market. The company grew rapidly, new products were added, and sales expanded. By the early 1900s they had offices in New York, San Francisco, Philadelphia and Chicago. Their product line had grown as well. They started out making just black ink, around 1874 they began to make colored ink. By 1890, the company had enlarged its Norwood facilities to fourteen buildings. By 1910 it was said they were the largest producer of printing ink in the United States.******

    JORNAL DE LETRAS - ANO II - RIO DE JANEIRO - JANEIRO 1950 through DEZEMBRO 1950. Twelve Issues bound together in hardcovers.

    A HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT, BOUND COLLECTION of this BRAZILIAN LITERARY NEWSPAPER, that was also VERY POLITICAL.

    ARTICLES on BRAZILIAN WRITERS and POETS of the DAY, International Authors of Note, and other Arts, including Music (especially Black Jazz), Painting, and Cinema.

    Many of the articles became very political, as Brazilian Writers and Poets began to rebel against Brazilian authority, restrictions, and right wing politics.

    Very large format newspapers bound together in hardcovers, black paper covered boards title written in white on the spine: "Jornal de Letras No. 7-18", 13x18.5".

    Monthly Brazilian Literary Newspaper, published in Rio de Janeiro. 12 issues, from January 1950 through December 1950.

    The newspaper issues were presumably bound by the UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, BERKELEY, because there is an Ex-Libris Stamp of the "Berkeley Library / University of California" on the front pastedown.

    Many (most?) of the issues seem to have 16 pages. All contain lots of Brazilian Literature and other Arts related articles, as well as Brazilian / Rio ads.

    CONDITION: The covers have rubs, scrapes, and pokes; the spine ends are worn; overall the covers remain sturdy and are doing their job. Internally, the pages are toned, as is normal; the pages all have wear, including chipping, to their edges; some pages have edge tears that extend an inch or two; the pages are tender especially at the edges and edge pieces can come off easily; nonetheless, the issues are in generally GOOD condition, most pages are solid (though fragile at the edges), all are legible and clean, kept that way by having been nicely bound and probably very rarely used. The issues provide a great window into the Literary Blossoming and its Political Stance in Brazil in 1950.

    I tried to provide enough images to give you a good idea of the types of articles and illustrations contained in these issues.

    I found a Brazilian website that discusses the early years of JORNAL DE LETRAS, 1949-1951. Here is the original Portuguese TEXT of the site:

    ******Curiosidades do Jornal de Letras, 1949-1951

    27 de março de 2013 em Escritores por: Roberta Fraga

    O Jornal de Letras foi uma publicação que teve edições de 1949 a 1993, sob e edição de José Condé e seus irmãos João Condé e Elysio Condé. Era um panomara da arte no cenário do Rio de Janeiro e também nacional.

    Lá, caso algum de vocês tenham o privilégio de ver algum dia in loco um exemplar do periódico, poderão ver o cotidiano da vida artística de grandes vultos das artes e da literatura.

    Era também um pouco de revista de fofoca dos artistas, mostrando cenas do dia-a-dia da cidade, rotina de lanches na Academia Brasileira de Letras, opiniões, picuinhas artísticas, publicidade relacionada. ******

    AND HERE IS THE TEXT AS GOOGLE TRANSLATED IT:

    ******Curiosities of Literature Journal 1949-1951, by: Robert Fraga, March 27, 2013.

    The literary journal was a publication...edited by José Condé and his brothers John and Elysio Condé. It was an art panorama of Rio de Janeiro and also of the nation.

    In these journals, if you have the privilege of seeing an early JORNAL copy, you may see the artistic life of the great figures of the arts and literature.

    The publication was also a bit of artists gossip magazine, showing scenes of day-to-day city life, tidbits and routines in the Brazilian Academy of Letters, opinions, and even artistic nitpicking related advertising.******
