Drypoint by Toledo, five photogravures by Iturbide, letterpress
With five black and white photogravures by Graciela Iturbide, a drypoint by Francisco Toledo and texts of legend and history in English, Spanish and Zapotec, the portfolio Garden celebrates the new Ethnobotanical Garden of Oaxaca, Mexico. Set on the grounds of a 16th century Dominican monastery in the heart of Oaxaca City, the garden is a museum of prehispanic plants and the culture and ethnography that surround them. The portfolio was created in collaboration with Oaxaca resident Toledo, his close friend Iturbide, and Graphicstudio, to support and nurture the establishment and continued growth of the Ethnobotanical Garden.
