Photos: Love, murder and death, illustrated, at Emmanuel Gallery

José Guadalupe Posada's engravings adorned everything from National Enquirer-style stories of monsters and grisly crimes to devout religious pamphlets. Today, artist Jerry Vigil creates three-dimensional wood carvings that translate Posada's style for a modern age, just as the Mexican engraver translated the day's news into unforgettable illustrations.

The two artists merge in Posada's Broadsheets: Of Love And Betrayal & Posada Inspired, which opened last Friday at Auraria's Emmanuel Gallery.
