Recently, the Public Library received the donation of the book Un Modelo a la Medida: Mario Moreno Cantinflas. The books was edited by the Mario E. Moreno Foundation for the occasion of the 106th anniversary of the birth of this Mexican comedian, who was better known as “Cantinflas.”

The copy is bound in hardcover and lined in fabric. The paper it was printed on was carefully selected to provide the best possible quality for the more than 80 illustrations by national and international artists. These illustrations immortalize this beloved comedian through caricatures and portraits that represent his artistic career throughout the decades.

A total of 2,000 copies of the book were not for sale, instead donated privately to individuals and national and international public institutions.

This magnificent work will be on permanent exhibition in the English Room of the Biblioteca.

“We go around the world drying sighs, taking away tears and distributing happiness.”

From the film, “Don Quixote Rides Again” (1972
