Using a group of hand-cut stencils he created over a period of twenty years, Mexican Fluxus artist Felipe Ehrenberg constructed a screenfold codex of imagery from contemporary Mexican life. The formal qualities of the stencils are similiar to visual elements used in nahua codices—they can be broken down and recombined to render complex meanings.

From the artist:" For this book (which like many other codices, should ideally be read like a detective novel) I have laid out my best beloved stencils. With these I seek to offer viewers various clues that you may unravel the wondrous and dramatic events surrounding the life of this artist, another witness to the end of the century."
