I was shocked when Francisco showed to me his linocut works. Subtle and radicals at the same time. We decided to make a colaboration while he was doing an University intership in Barcelona. The next time that he appeared at the studio he was bringing with him a nàhuatl poem by Ateri Miyawatl. We had in front of us the beguining of a book.
Neijmantototsintle received the Judge’s Choice Awards, at the Oxford Fine Press Book Fair, 2018.
