Eloísa Cartonera: Cardboard Publishing

Eloísa Cartonera are truly independent publishers with a meaningful purpose. Their statement: "We are Eloísa Cartonera, a work cooperative placed in the neighborhood of La Boca in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina. We produce handmade books with cardboard covers. We purchase this cardboard from the urban pickers ("cartoneros") who pick it from the streets. Our books are of Latin American literature, the most beautiful we had a chance to read in our lives, both as publishers as well as readers." Please visit their site and be inspired!
