  • Notes: One of the "libros cartoneros" currently being produced throughout Latin America by non-profit community projects such as Eloísa Cartonera, the first such project, founded in Buenos Aires in 2003 by artists Javier Barilaro and Fernanda Laguna, and writer Washington Cucurto, and Sarita Cartonera, a similar project based in Lima, Peru, organized the following year in 2004. Inexpensively-photocopied avant guard and experimental texts by well-known, as well as new, writers, alive as well as deceased, are bound in covers made from pieces of cardboard boxes scavenged from the garbage by "cartoneros", and hand-painted by them in unique designs. This collaborative effort of writers, artists, and "cartoneros" has made books affordable and accessible to more readers, popularized marginal literature, created new uses for discarded materials, and provided jobs for garbage scavengers.
