A visually stunning new book, Sea Monsters on Medieval and Renaissance Maps, covers a topic of history, that until now, has not been published in a comprehensive collection. The book’s author Chet Van Duzer, a Medieval and Renaissance map scholar, joined forces with the British Library, who published the book. The book’s jacket liner bests explains its content:
Beautiful black and white photo set collection of the legendary Mexican singer and actress Chavela Vargas (April 17, 1919 – August 5, 2012). Chavela was known for her haunting voice and stood out as one of the first openly lesbian Latin American artists of her time.
Chavela era Costa Riqueña, por favor. Era cantante de música ranchera Mexicana, pero muy orgullosa de ser de Costa Rica nacida en San Joaquín de Las Flores. Obtuvo nacionalidad Mexicana pero nunca dejo de amar de ser de su hermosa Costa Rica.
