Gringo Death Coloring Book is a collaborative artist book made in the aftermath of 2017’s Hurricane Maria’s devastating impact on Puerto Rico. The text by Raquel Salas Rivera, excerpted from his full-length book While They Sleep (Under the Bed Is Another Country) [Birds, LLC 2019] is dialogic fragments interspersed with prose poems reflecting on the lasting impact of colonial trauma, arranged around the two different discourses. Hand-carved linoleum images made and printed by Mariana Ramos Ortiz. Book designed and bound, and text letterpress printed by Erica Mena.
