Day of the Dead Bookmarks

Ann Murdy, The Flowers for the Dead from the project Oaxaca Day of the Dead, 2013, digital file, NMMA Permanent Collection, Gift of the artist

Download one or both of these free bookmarks featuring beautiful Day of the Dead traditions captured by photo journalist, Ann Murdy. The NMMA is the fortunate recipient of the Ann Murdy Archive, a treasure trove of over 7,000 digital photos from her numerous travels throughout Mexico, documenting regional celebrations. With generous support from the Philip and Edith Leonian Foundation, we were able to hire Pamela N. Morales Fuentes as an archive intern to assist cataloguing this vast collection and she created this bookmark for you.

The NMMA gift shop, Tienda Tzintzuntan, carries the luscious hardcover book, On the Path of Marigolds: Living Traditions of Mexico’s Day of the Dead, a photo essay by Ann Murdy. Pick one up during your next visit!
