Full Codex Magliabechiano PDF

 

Despite their goriness, I absolutely love the aesthetics of the Aztec Codices. I was going through the pages of the Codex Magliabechiano when I stumbled upon a line that caught my attention:

En esta fiesta celebrauan otro demonio. q[ue] se dezia ometuchtli que es el dios de las borracheras.

During this festivity [the Aztecs] celebrated another spirit called Ometuchtli, who is the god of drunkness.

Aztec mythology seems to be full of drunken parties. At any rate, I am thinking of printing this as a Coffe-Table book.
