Don’t be broken anymore
Anais Abreu

"I always had the fear of being separated and abandoned. The sewing is my attempt to keep things together and make things whole." —Louise Bourgeois.

This handmade book is a doll that surges from Anais Abreu's necessity to reunite with herself, to get out of bed, and to step without fear. The author identifies the publication as a response to the gender violence in Mexico. The Paper Woman represents hope.

La Diéresis Editorial Artesanal, 2022

A book can also exist as an autonomous and self-sufficient form, including perhaps a text that emphasizes that form, a text that is an organic part of that form: here begins the new art of making books. (Ulises Carrion)
