Latin American Cartonera

The Latin American Cartonera Publishers Database serves to bring together information and digital images of the cartonera literary art publishing movement from various Latin American cities. The University of Wisconsin, Madison has gathered together examples of the recycled books from Argentina, where the movement began in 2003 and also from Bolivia, Peru, Chile, Mexico, Paraguay and Brazil to provide exceptional documentation of the group. Each individual record provides: digital images of the front and back cover of the book; the title page; bibliographical and descriptive information.
