When Manivela was invited to participate in the Book Fair ArtsLibris in Spain, it decided to invite more independent publishing houses from Mexico. This is how Nodos Editoriales was born, by invitation.
Each publishing house named another until it became a web. One of the main goals was to show the variety of publications from those made by hand, fanzines, to the hard cover art books. During the invitation process, all editors where interviewed. All this information will be publish at the end of the project. Another element included was an artist's books show and a series of lectures.
ArtsLibris was presented in the contemporary art fair ARCO in Madrid between the 24th and 28th of February and in Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona between the 21st and 24th of April 2016.
