Codex Espangliensis Spreads.


Performance texts by Guillermo Gómez-Peña. Collage images by Enrique Chagoya. Bookwork designed and printed by Felicia Rice.  “Inspired by the pre-Hispanic codices that escaped immolation during colonial invasions. Source.

Rice has created a series of beautiful and jarring montages in which the mixture of languages, slang, poetry, and prose of Gómez-Peña’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.
