Description
From Georgia Museum book: "As with Mendez's chapulin flyers, the intention was to maintain market stability and reduce the exploitation of farmers by unscrupulous speculators. As usual, each flyer is decorated, usually with a reproduction of an ink drawing rather than an image form a linocut. Both Chavez Morado and Raul Anguiano, in absentia workshop members at best, returned to contribute caricatures, often in cartoon strip sequences, for this series.
