The Story of Colors / La Historia de los Colores

A Bilingual Folktale from the Jungles of Chiapas

By (author) Subcomandante Marcos, Illustrated by Domitila Dominguez, Translated by Anne Bar Din

This ""subversive"" book is now available in paperback! When the NEA -rescinded funding for The Story of Colors, the news hit the cover of the New York Times and made the book an instant bestseller. But far from being subversive, this beautifully illustrated folktale teaches us all about the value of diversity. Old man Antonio tells how a long time ago the world was just black and white and gray. This bored the gods, so they went looking for bright colors and they found them in the most peculiar places!

No one exactly knows who -Subcomandante Marcos is, but since New Year’s Day 1994, when the Zapatistas declared war on the Mexican government, he has become a post-modern revolutionary hero.
