Tlacuilix: Tongues In Quarantine is the first book by Project 1521, a group of Southern California writers, scholars, and artists. The book honors people who have endured family separations, colonialism, and institutional violence through cultural affirmation and various forms of resistance.
Project 1521 studied and wrote about the Florentine Codex and how its content echoed the pain and resistance in today’s social justice movements. In 1576, the indigenous scribes and artists finishing the Florentine Codex were sequestered to survive a raging plague. Project 1521 sequestered through the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. The writing in this book contains the writers’ lived experiences.
