Limited to 44 copies, of which this is one of 2 copies with an extra suite of two prints, as well as one of the original woodblocks used to print the illustrations. A fine copy in fine clamshell box. Text in Catalan and English. The poem enjoys wide appeal throughout Latin American countries, and its strong presence in popular circles has raised questions about its authorship. Antonio Muñoz Feijóo was a Colombian poet born in Popayán in the Cauca region of Colombia. A philosopher-poet, patriot, and engineer at the University of Cauca, he launched the literary gathering "Escuela Literaria" and took part in various political and cultural seminars. He died in 1890 in Santander de Quilichao, Cauca.

Death and Life are represented in two Resingraves with pochoir backgrounds by Elies Plana, who also did the print, and along with Gaby Comba, the layout for the poem, and Ronald Puppo the English translation.

Printed on Creysse paper by Guarro Casas, the cover on Ca l'Oliver handmade paper, with a Korrex Berlin proof press, set in Futura type.
