Rather than selling them individually, we love these bilingual booklets (each title is English and Spanish) so much as a set that you'll just have to get all five together. Thankfully that's a really inexpensive proposition. The five Antena booklets in this set are:
A Manifesto for Discomfortable Writing
A Manifesto for Interpretation as Instigation
A Manifesto for Ultratranslation
How To Write (More)
How To Build Language Justice
More about this great initiative from the source:
Libros Antena Books is an imprint for small-scale bilingual DIY bookmaking. Our books are home-made, hand-bound (usually), accessibly priced, and intended for live human touch. We are committed to enthusiastically celebrating the work of other small and tiny presses, and to supporting others in making their own publications by sharing our bookmaking skills through workshops, web-based tutorials, and how-to pamphlets.
"Antena is a language justice collaborative founded in 2010 by Jen Hofer and John Pluecker, both of whom are writers, artists, literary translators, bookmakers and activist interpreters. In 2014, Antena Los Ángeles was founded as the first local branch of Antena, with the participation of Miguel Morales Cruz and Ana Paula Noguez Mercado. Antena Los Ángeles is specifically focused on building multilingual spaces locally in Southern California.
Antena views our aesthetic practice as part and parcel of our language justice work. Antena activates links between social justice work and artistic practice by exploring how critical views on language can help us to reimagine and rearticulate the worlds we inhabit. Antena works with organizations, communities and individuals to create dynamic, well-functioning multilingual spaces for small and large groups of people to foster open communication and attentive listening across languages and cultures. We primarily work with Spanish and English but have experience coordinating more diverse language combinations."
