Broadside posters printed on both sides in red and black in Spanish on poor quality paper. With folds. Two with original addressed envelopes. Very good indeed.
El Correo de Euclides (Euclid's Mail) is a series of extraordinary annual posters that Max Aub described as Christmas stories, produced 1959-1968. With the format and typography of 'bullfight' posters they are surreal news announcements utilizing tabloid headlines. Examples are: PARADISE OPEN TO EVERYONE AS OF NEXT WEEK, WE ARE NOT CHILDREN OF OUR PARENTS, TERRIBLE MISTAKE: MEN WERE NOT DESTINED FOR EARTH. Yet another calculates in detail the number of our ancestors as greater than the current population of the earth.
