Scanned from Diccionario De Albures Ilustrado by Carlos Chávez, Gómez Gómez Hnos. Editores, Mexico, D.F., 2000.
Public Collectors is founded upon the concern that there are many types of cultural artifacts that public libraries, museums and other institutions and archives either do not collect or do not make freely accessible. Public Collectors asks individuals that have had the luxury to amass, organize, and inventory these materials to help reverse this lack by making their collections public.
This page consists of sample findings and excerpts. It is also an account of the contents of my home and digital files from my camera. If you have suggestions, have a collection you want to share, or are in Chicago and would like to see something in person, please contact me. This blog is intended as a casual, more personal supplement to the main Public Collectors website.

Diccionario De Albures Ilustrado by Carlos Chávez, Gómez Gómez Hnos. Editores, Mexico, D.F., 2000.
I’m guessing this is not by the same Carlos Chávez that was a Mexican composer. This subversive alphabet book looks like a children’s book from the cover but the inside is filled with coloring book style line drawings of sex-crazed animals getting into all sorts of alcohol-fueled debauchery. Scans of a couple interior pages to follow.
