Stories in red and black : pictorial histories of the Aztecs and Mixtecs by Elizabeth Hill Boone ( Book )
8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book will be important reading not only for scholars of ancient Mexico, but also for avocational students of Pre-Columbian history who want to learn to read the Aztec and Mixtec codices and learn their stories and legends. Likewise, it offers food for thought to scholars in a variety of disciplines who think comparatively about histories and/or graphic systems of communication."--BOOK JACKET

Cycles of time and meaning in the Mexican books of fate by Elizabeth Hill Boone ( Book )
9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 599 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this comprehensive study, Elizabeth Hill Boone analyzes the entire extant corpus of Mexican divinatory codices and offers an explanation of the genre as a whole. She introduces the sacred, divinatory calendar and the calendar priests and diviners who owned and used the books. Boone then explains the graphic vocabulary of the calendar and its prophetic forces, and describes the organizing principles that structure the codices. She shows how they form almanacs that either offer general purpose guidance or focus topically on specific aspects of life, such as birth, marriage, agriculture and rain, and the forces of the planet Venus. Boone also tackles two major areas of controversy - the great narrative passage in the Codex Borgia, which she interprets as a cosmic narrative of creation, and the disputed origins of the codices, which, she argues, grew out of a single religious and divinatory system."--BOOK JACKET

"Important anthology marking, but not celebrating, the Columbian Quincentenary, directing attention to indigenous cultural responses to the Spanish intrusion in Mexico and Peru, utilizing as much as possible native documents and sources, and exploring mentalities. While we can benefit from the analysis and methodology in all contributions to this volume, items certain to interest Mesoamericanists include: Hill Boone, 'Introduction,' for the volume's orientation; Laiou, 'The Many Faces of Medieval Colonization,' for background, analysis of colonization as process, and its multiple forms; Lockhart, 'Three Experiences of Culture Contact: Nahua, Maya, and Quechua,' for special attention to language change as a reflection of broader cultural evolution in key areas; Hill Boone, 'Pictorial Documents and Visual Thinking in Postconquest Mexico,' for an examination of the endurance of these forms in 16th-century Nahua culture; Wood, 'The Social vs. Legal Context of Nahuatl Títulos,' for an examination of community self-representation in native manuscripts and pictorials in the eighteenth century; Gillespie, 'The Triple Alliance: A Postconquest Tradition,' for an explanation of the colonial manipulation of the symbolic triadic organization for a new historical tradition; Burkhart, 'Pious Performances: Christian Pageantry and Native Identity in Early Colonial Mexico,' for a study of the Nahuas' reshaping of Christian ritual; Karttunen, 'Indigenous Writing as a Vehicle of Postconquest Continuity and Change in Mesoamerica,' for an examination of Nahua and Maya writing traditions into the present, including evidence of women's lesser but possibly significant role; and, Cummins, 'Native Traditions in the Postconquest World: Commentary,' for concluding reflections on the interrelated elements of text (written, performative, visual, auratic, and so on), image, discourse, language, traditions, identity, and colonialism"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58

Their way of writing : scripts, signs, and pictographies in Pre-Columbian America ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Writing and recording are key cultural activities that allow humans to communicate across time and space. Whereas Old World writing evolved into the alphabetic system that is now employed around the world, the indigenous peoples in the Americas autonomously developed alternative systems that conveyed knowledge in a tangible medium. New World systems range from the hieroglyphic script of the Maya, to the figural and iconic pictographies of the Aztecs, Mixtecs, and Zapotecs in Mexico and the Moche in Peru, to the abstract knotted khipus of the Andes. Like Old World writing, these systems represented a cultural category that was fundamental to the workings of their societies, one that was heavily impregnated with cultural value. - The fifteen contributors to Their Way of Writing: Scripts, Signs, and Pictographies in Pre-Columbian America consider substantive and theoretical issues concerning writing and signing systems in the ancient Americas. They present the latest thinking about these graphic and tactile systems of communication. Their variety of perspectives and their advances in decipherment and understanding constitute a major contribution not only to our understanding of Pre-Columbian and indigenous American cultures but also to our comparative and global understanding of writing and literacy
