Book Overview

The fascinating world of Aztec glyphic writing, magnificently explained by an erudite expert in the ancient art of tlacuilolli.--María Castañeda De La Paz, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México

Drawing from a deep knowledge of global writing systems and many years' experience studying Aztec hieroglyphs, Whittaker has compiled a must-read primer that is accessible to novices and advanced students alike. His illumination of the general structures of a bona fide written Nahuatl that appears to have emerged from Teotihuacan, detailed analyses of copious examples drawn from an array of codices from the Basin of Mexico, and careful attention to changes that came as a result of contact with Spanish should fascinate all readers.--Stephanie Wood, Director of the Wired Humanities Projects, University of Oregon

Aztec writing was an ancient system that developed explosively in the face of cultural needs arising from the terrible shock of the Spanish conquest and colonization. It is a historical case worthy of study to understand the catalysts of the creative power of the human being. In this book, Whittaker analyses the system from the perspective of a noted expert in Aztec history, language, and culture.--Alfredo López Austin, Emeritus Professor of History at the Instituto de Investigaciones Antropológicas of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México
