    Visually stunning and incredibly powerful Truly a must purchase.I m sure librarians everywhere will cringe a bit about the vulnerable accordion fold design interpreting the Mixtec codices but Abrams has done an outstanding job of making it as sturdy as possible.

    This eye opening look at undocumented workers and the challenges they face needs to be read by everyone The opening line is just stunningly accurate You don t know our names but you ve seen us unpaged This is so true of almost all of us, taking for granted the labor of others and often even benefiting financially from what they do Not only does the book explain some of th

    So much to process, pore over, and discuss in this short but powerful text Tonatiuh makes a point to include intersectional concerns, including how the problems related to being undocumented, an IPOC, and working poor are made worse for women His illustrations never fail to blow me away, as there is so much to examine I liked the review that stated how the accordion style is sort of a nigh...
