    When last week I found the LA FARSA little books I started a search of simmilar ones... I immediatey got four very beautiful books with covers illustrated by Alonso, but not happy enough I went on searching for books published in the 1920s/1930s. And then I found this one: JUEGO DE BOLOS (The bowling game), published within the collection La Novela de Hoy (Today's Novel), written by Juan Pérez Zúñiga and illustrated by Joaquín Xaudaró. And yes, Xaudaró's dog appears both in the cover and the illustrations inside.

    La Novela de Hoy is one of the many cheap paperback short novel collections that were published at the time. It's amazing there were a lot of these books or magazines printed every week, appart from literary magazines and regular books. La Novela de Hoy offered comic-erotic novelettes and was published very succesfully between 1922 and 1932. Due to the subjects of the novels in the collection, it was always in the eye of the official censorship. When in 1929 they published "The Captain's daughter", a short novel by Ramón María del Valle-Inclán (one of the best writers in the 20th Century), Primo de Rivera ordered the prosecution of the director of the collection, Artemio Precioso, who finally exiled himself in France.

    There's little I can add about Xaudaró, as this is not the first time I post about him, and much less about its famous dog, who has been the main character in four of my postings. I can only say I really really had to buy this book when I saw it :)

    On pics. 2, 3 and 4 you can see three of the six illustrations in the book, all of them with the already famous dog

      Your very welcome austro!!!! I would be very excited as well !! I wished I could find something like this in my neck of the woods!!!!

      I'm sure you have amazing magazines or paperbacks from the 30s in the US. It simply is a question of knowing what to look for

      Apart from his lovely dog Joaquín Xaudaró had a very distinctive and humorous style!
      Great addition to your collection Austro.

      Thanks KAREN! He did have this humorous approach to almost everything he made, although he made some "serious" work as well, although it's not haldf as fun as these.

      Also thanks to MICHELLE for her love!

      Xaudaro´s dog is so special, love it as those illustrations.
      As you said austro, US has awesome magazines, illustrators and more, a big paradise I think.
      I love Spanish prints of course and I tell you, thanks so much for share with us your very interesting stuff.
      Always learning here, a pleasure!

      I love this Austro! Despite it's age, the cover has kept it's beautiful, vibrant colors, and these wonderful illustrations were obviously made by a super talented artist! Thanks for sharing ....

      Thanks for loving, and commenting, MANI, VIOLET, TREY, INKY, RICK and VIRGINIA!

      These illustrations and artists are almost unknown in Spain. Xaudaró is one of the few that is still known by a few (he's even got a street called after him... although in an industrial area :/ ), but others are completely forgotten. I'm now finding out about many of them and I think they all mafde an excellent work. So I find it's my duty to at least tell the world they existed, and were talented, and did amazing drawings.
