, twenty-first century Mexicans are proud recipients of an enormous inheritance in the art of printing, We are undertaking to renew and enrich this magnificent legacy by working towards its preservation and promotion via teaching and applying the highest standards of printing craftsmanship to the production of handmade books.
Enthusiastically, we thank the San Francisco-based Codex Foundation, an institution devoted to the preservation and promotion of the book arts, and accept their fraternal invitation to establish the Mexican chapter of the international Codex network. Let this be a cooperative and noble effort between friends from the United States and Mexico.
We commit ourselves to promoting a greater public awareness of book arts in Mexico and Latin America in recognition of the pressing need to protect and advance knowledge of typography, innovation in bookbinding, hand-papermaking, design, and printing, as well as bibliographic activities and the history of the book.
