Publisher Comments:

Las creencias apocalípticas de los aztecas acerca del fin de los tiempos fueron descritas en el calendario de la Piedra del Sol encontrado en el año 1790 en lo que es hoy Ciudad México. En 20 exquisitos dibujos en pincel negro y blanco, por Ianna Andréadis, y una pintura a todo color de la Piedra del Sol, por Felipe Dávalos, el calendario azteca cobra vida. Cada mes se presenta en inglés, español y nahuatl, y el texto aporta contexto a las imágenes. Este libro es una maravillosa introducción a la magia de la cosmología azteca, un recurso cautivador para niños estudiantes de las culturas mesoamericanas, y un regalo fascinante para cualquier persona interesada en los aztecas y en sus interpretaciones del tiempo.

The Aztecs apocalyptic beliefs about the end of time were depicted on the Sun Stone calendar found in 1790 in what is now Mexico City. In 20 exquisite black-and-white brush drawings by Ianna Andréadis and a full-color painting of the Sun Stone by Felipe Dávalos, the Aztec calendar comes to life. Each month appears in English, Spanish, and Nahuatl, and the text puts the images into context. This book is a wonderful introduction to the magic of Aztec cosmology, an engaging resource for children studying Meso-American cultures, and a fascinating gift book for anyone interested in the Aztecs and their interpretations of time.
