The Raving Press has done it again! We are raising the profile of border life with our newest anthology of art and literature by authors, artists and photographers called "Border Arts: Beyond the Barriers".
This anthology was realized with the participation of nearly 40 authors and artists all writing from or about the U.S.-Mexico border states. Some of these artists and authors have extensive publishing careers and experience in the the publishing field working as writers, photographers, journalists, and editors for such big name enterprises as the Miami Herald, the New York Times and other organizations.
Other authors and artists may not be so firmly established in their respective fields, but their works included here reflect a love, talent, and appreciation of border life that needs to be seen and read in every corner of our nation.
The border arts reflect the real face of the people and cultures straddling this invisible line between nations. It is not a clear, pristine image. It is a chaotic, complicated one. It cannot be accused of villainy outright, nor granted sainthood altogether. But the overall product of its activity and existence is one with a magnitude of great global influence artistically and culturally. We are the artists, photographers, authors, and publishers shaping the reality of the border like sculptors working with stone. These are the stories and images of the border. These are the border arts.
