A beautiful “picture book“ made in the form of ancient Mexican codices that tells the story of a family's migrations to the United States made in memory of the many children lost on the way.

#WanderingJune Day 25: The story told in brilliant accordion format begins with a fairly vivid description of this young boy‘s village #DownInMexico flanked by the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. The chaotic nature of migration is perfectly captured with the presence of the police, the wall that divides one place from another, the desperate men willing to risk everything to go to the other side.
