Hecho a Mano: Book Arts of Latin America

Screenshot
This collection from the University of North Carolina Library highlights book art from three Latin American countries: Argentina, Cuba, and Mexico. As Teresa Chapa, the project's collector and curator, explains: "This exhibition highlights two of these trends in publishing and book-making that are quite distinct, as well as some of the ways that they intersect. One trend preserves time-honored traditions; the other experiments with format or playfully subverts it." This collection, which includes over 100 images of book art spanning from 1989 to 2008 may be browsed by Author, Country, Date, or Publisher. Each item in this collection can be enlarged and viewed in detail, accompanied by cataloging information. The collection includes book art that employs a wide variety of techniques and materials, including textile design, collage, printmaking, and more. It will appeal to anyone interested in Latin American art as well as graphic design lovers.
