This beautifully hand-made book by Dani Eizrik is based on his time spent with 5 families involved in the production of heirloom Agave spirits and what their world looks like through words and art which includes both the English and Spanish translations.
“A small paper window opens to the sincerest impressions I’ve collected here, in this short and sweet residency. Here I leave some wishes, like a small raft in an open sea: the wish that business pressures do not swallow ancestral rites, that the spirituality associated with power plants may survive the storm; the wish that the global thirst leave space in the paisanos’s cup; the wish that the chemical industry does not meddle with the agave’s own time; the wish that the mining business progresses slowly, that its thirst doesn’t drink all the manatials’ water; the wish that the stalks, in their enormous diversity, can flower together with the agave producers, that they manage to keep their genetic variety and feed their natural pollinators; the wish that any game the small producers may enter into applies the same rules for everyone; the deepest wish that you, who is reading this, can promote peace in your decisions, and, within your limits, act in favour of poetry and ecology.”
