Note:
With the high cost of shipping many of our customers choose to ship by USPS. For small and light shipments this is usually less expensive, but please be aware that their estimates are often wrong and only include insurance up to $100 for its domestic shipments. If you ask for full insurance we will recalculate the shipping cost and send you an invoice for any difference in cost.

I will be away from the gallery between July 10th and July 19th, and so will not be shipping or open for visitors at the gallery. The Indigo Arts website will be active as always. I will respond to emails as soon as possible. I will be able to ship orders after July 19th, 2024.

Walking Words
By Eduardo Galeano, with woodcuts by José Francisco Borges.
W.W. Norton & Co, New York, London, 1993.  Paperback.  328 pages.
Note:  Copies were apparently returned copies and are slightly shop-worn.

"Walking Words is a brilliant feat of storytelling in the tradition of Italo Calvino's Italian Folktales.  In it, Eduardo Galeano, author of the acclaimed Memory of Fire trilogy, draws on the folklore of rural and urban Latin America to discover and retell "the stories of ghouls and fools that I'd like to write."  These tales are beautifully illustrated by his collaborator, the Brazilian woodcut artist José Francisco Borges, and become testaments to the power of stories to make and remake and enchant the world."
