Throughout the month of March, the Black Drop Coffee House will be
displaying the Codex of Little Hope by Charles Jones.
The Codex of Little Hope is a degraded variation of the Codex Laud
uncovered by Jones and Jose Garcia Payon at El Tajin in Mexico in
Jones developed a radical thesis that the Codex was unique among
Mesoamerican pictographic manuscripts because it was concerned not
with astronomical phenomena but the the death and “absence” of the
gods. And, also, the deification of human beings.
To illustrate his beliefs, Jones isolated and reconstructed twenty
“hieroglyphic elements” from the Codex of Little Hope. These twenty
plates, along with substantial explanatory information, will be on
display during the month of March at the Black Drop Coffee House.
