La Borinqueña is the critically acclaimed and best-selling graphic novel series by writer and creator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez.
This Fine Art Edition, conceived and art directed by Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, features illustration by Will Rosado and painting by Sophia Canning. The artwork captures an historic moment in Puerto Rico on September 23, 1868, when independence leader Mariana Bracetti lead a revolutionary movement against the Spanish Empire to free the town of Lares, Puerto Rico. She would create what would be the first flag of Puerto Rico and this day would be known for years to come as El Grito de Lares (The Cry of Lares). This exclusive Fine Art Limited Edition celebrates that 150 year anniversary, in a strict worldwide edition of 150.
The artwork also features Lola Rodriguez de Tío, the original author of the national anthem, La Borinqueña alongside Iris Morales, Dr. Marta Moreno Vega and Felicita Mendez all Puerto Ricans from the diaspora who have fought for social justice over the decades.
Flying above them all is the fictional character, La Borinqueña, shining as a beacon of hope for a brighter and stronger Puerto Rico.
