When it comes to celebrating Muertos, it’s bittersweet because there is so much commercialism these days – yet we are happy that this tradition is being recognized by so many. Food blogger, Ericka Sanchez of NibblesAndFeasts.com wanted to do her part to show the beauty behind the skulls. She shared the book concept with friends and together, everyone embraced the idea! I was very honored to have been asked to participate along with these other artful women. We pitched ideas, Erika curated them, assigned us deadlines, and she had the book designed.
Talk about indie, grassroots style – this is it, right here! This book is 100% from the heart!
“I was inspired because I wanted to share what this holiday is all about,” Ericka says. “Many people confuse it with Halloween or think its morbid. I first experienced the beauty of this holiday in Oaxaca and was in awe. I had never seen anything like it. And although I couldn’t recreate those impressive altars and celebrations within this book, Ofrendas: Celebrando el Día de Muertos is a bit of what us bicultural Latinas yearn for to preserve and educate our kids to keep the tradition alive.”
Within the 66 full-color pages are original illustrations and graphic design by artist Brenda Montes. You’ll also find crafts and recipes from bloggers such as Denise Cortes, Nicole Presley, Ericka Sanchez, Maura Hernandez, Vianney Rodriguez, Leslie Limon, – and me too! Please visit everyone’s sites and let them know how much you like their contribution, you will make them so happy!
