Codex Espangliensis [Posted for Felicia Rice, Moving Parts Press]

Codex Espangliensis

My American is a continent not a country,
which is not described by the outlines
on any of the standard maps.
--Guillermo Gomez-Pena

Moving Parts Press is pleased to announce the publication of
Codex Espangliensis: From Columbus to the Border Patrol

Codex Espangliensis is a collaborative work made up of performance texts
and poems by Guillermo G=F3mez-Pe=F1a interwoven with collage imagery by
Enrique Chagoya into book form by Felicia Rice of Moving Parts Press.

Codex Espangliensis chronicles and confronts the realities and surrealities
of border culture on the eve of the millennium. Chagoya's collage images
juxtapose examples of graphic art from pre-Hispanic times to present-day
Mexico with traditions of Western art and contemporary American pop
culture. G=F3mez-Pe=F1a's series of performance texts and poems are selected
from the writer's works over his twenty-year career.

Codex Espangliensis is letterpress-printed in black and red from zinc
photoengravings on Amatl paper lined with Shintengujo tissue. The book
measures 9 x 11.5 inches and its accordion-fold structure reaches 31 feet
at its full extension. The book is housed in an Amatl paper and Canapetta
black book cloth Shiho chitsu-style portfolio box made by Maureen Carey.

An edition of 50, signed and numbered (ISBN 0-939952-22-x)

Numbers 16-45, cased in portfolio boxes: $3000
