• Antonio Martorell. Las Antillas Letradas. Ponce, Puerto Rico: Antonio Martorell, 2014. Multi-media. Edition: 1/100.

Curatorial note:
  • This printed mural has three layers: twenty-seven letters from the Spanish alphabet; portraits of twenty-seven distinguished Latin American authors and scholars, with selected texts in their original languages of Spanish, English, and French; and an underlying map of the Antilles that holds the separate images together in one harmonious scene. Princeton was honored to acquire the first impression of this set, particularly because the “Ñ” holds the portrait of Arcadio Díaz Quiñones, the Emory L. Ford Professor of Spanish, Emeritus, at Princeton University.
