Gomez-Pena, Guillermo, Enrique Chagoya, and Felicia Rice. Codex Espanglienses: from Columbus to the border patrol. San Francisco: City Lights Books. 2000

Other Descriptive Information

As described by Libros Latinos: "Inspired by the pre-Hispanic codices that escaped immolation during colonial invasions, this artists' book opens out in accordion folds expanding to a length of over 21 feet. Rice has created a series of beautiful and jarring montages in which the mixture of languages, slang, poetry, and prose of Gomez-Pena's performance texts are woven through and around Chagoya's collages filled with pre-Hispanic drawings, colonial-era representations of New World natives, and comic book superheroes. Irreverent to the last, Gomez-Pena and Chagoya employ iconic figures and persistent stereotypes to overturn the fantasies of nationalism, ethnocentrism, and historical amnesia that cloud international relations. Rice's masterful typographic compositions orchestrate the text's many voices and views, offering a history of the Americas which must be read forward and backward, in fragments and in recurring episodes- in short, as history itself tends to unfold."
Text by Guillermo Gómez-Peña. Imagery by Enrique Chagoya. Bookwork by Felicia Rice.

Tavera, Maria Cristina, Bobbette Axelrod, and Ted Frankel. Mexican pulp art. Los Angeles: Feral House. 2007

Other Descriptive Information

As described by Libros Latinos: "The lurid cover art of Mexican pulp novels are a pop culture revelation. Never before seen in an English- or even Spanish-language collection are the often surreal and psychedelic images of extraterrestrials, robots, dinosaurs, dastardly killers, Zorro, Santo, and many other icons from stories involving suspense, mystery, romance, and the supernatural. Collected by Minneapolis' Bobbette Axelrod (owner of the Sister Fun toy shop) and Baltimore's Ted Frankel (proprietor of the American Visionary Art Museum's store, Sideshow), Mexican Pulp Art presents the most striking examples of this sensational art form of the 1960s and 1970s. Researcher Maria Cristina Tavera's introduction tells us about the original publishing companies, artists, and comic story lines of Micro Legends, Micro Suspense, Micro Mystery, and The Unexpected."

Other Descriptive Information

As described by Libros Latinos: "Two issues of a comic that recreates scenarios from the era of the Mexican Revolution as they may have been experienced by the masses of unnamed individuals who did not make it into the history books but lived through the tumultuous events. Both issues deal with strikes and the efforts of disenfranchised masses to revolt. Volume two prominently displays a mob of armed and disgruntled workers beneath a red and black banner. Perhaps to enhance the reality, the illustration has been completed in a phot-realistic style which is atypical of this period."
