English-Spanish

A time of angels  -   Tiempo de ángeles

Celebrating the release of A Time of Angels, Homero Aridjis, one of Latin America's greatest living writers addresses the intangible reign of the angels amidst the ruins of our daily life. These poems offer faith in the eloquent silence of the angels as a sign of hope, and point to glimpses of their presence among us. A fable of sorts, accompanied by drawings by prominent Mexican artist Francisco Toledo in a deluxe, bilingual limited edition.

El libro es en sí una fábula, acompañada de dibujos por el destacado artista mexicano Francisco Toledo, en una edición limitida, de lujo y bilingüe
