The Florentine Codex, one of the richest surviving sources of information on preconquest Aztec life, is now available in digital format! The Transcendent Icon, Resplendent Quetzal project of the Arizona State University Hispanic Research Center (HRC), in collaboration with Prof. Karl A. Taube of the University of California, Riverside, is pleased to offer a complete facsimile of the codex, with full-color illustrations, at little over cost to professionals in the discipline. The 8.5" x 11.5" pages are in 300 dpi TIF format, and each image is approximately 25 MB. Smaller JPGs (500 KB each) are included for faster browsing.

The Florentine Codex consists of twelve books that describe Aztec life before the Spanish conquest. Created under the supervision of Franciscan friar Bernardino de Sahagún between approximately 1540 and 1585, these manuscripts were compiled from records of conversations and interviews with indigenous people in Tlatelolco, Texcoco, and Tenochtitlan.
