Taller Leñateros is rustic and filled with paper treasures. They do so much here and so much of it with recyled materials.
Everything has a purpose.
A series of prints fresh off the presses!
My young guide hopped on the bike and pedaled to show me how this contraption mixes the flowers with the pulp. Ingenious! This is what, for me, is at the heart of true creativity – problem solving. Figuring things out. Making something from nothing.
A book cover lying in wait.
I bought a few things I’ll show you later. Materials I will recycle again for another book.
People are hard at work here contributing to the entire process in important ways.
A mountain of newly made paper ready for printing or bookmaking.
This is their 100 year old press from OHIO!
When you come to San Cristobal de Las Casas put this on your list of places to see!
p.s. I’ve figured out how to put more than 5 pics in a post. If you want or need to do the same get Video Email App for iPad. It is fantastic!
