This enchanting book of folk art gathered from the villages of Panama, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Guatemala, Bolivia, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador, and other countries is based on the popular exhibit at Hemis Fair in San Antonio, Texas designed by the internationally famous architect and designer, Alexander Girard.
Girard - "As we look at these enchanting toys and figures we are invited to translate their meaning into the terms of our own experience—and to attempt to create customs and forms that are just as significant, poetic, and valid."
