Facsimile Editions

Fortunately there is now a serious movement to publish Mesoamerican pictographic documents and it promises to continue through the 1990’s. Working directly with originals has become more and more difficult. Codices are scattered throughout several countries; they are fragile and many are in an advanced state of deterioration. Institutions have imposed ever greater restrictions to check their holdings and, in spite of technical advances in preservation, the loss of data is irremediable since, for example, colors fade and change over time. For those reasons, publishing facsimiles is the only way to create a solid corpus of new and efficient instruments to work with.
