Within the colour slide library, now containing several thousand original images all taken in Mexico during the last 20 years, we have a unique collection of Aztec images and pictures of Aztec artefacts, many visible on our Aztecs pages.

Not only can we provide a wide range of images from Mexico, we know the material inside out, and can give you specialist knowledge of the subject matter.

Our own collection covers archeological sites, excavations and ruins, pyramids, statues and monuments, sculptures, murals, calendars, codices and manuscripts, musical instruments, costumes, arts and crafts, food and farming, everyday artefacts, ceremonies, jewellery, and much more.

Hola. I am updating a book on medical care in Mexico and would like to use an photo of herbs that I found on your website. Sadly, I have no budget so I am asking, (more like begging) for permission to use it to illustrate the segment on herbs. I would be happy to show credit however you’d like it shown with a link to your site if you’d like. Thank you. Monica
Mexicolore replies: In principle we’re delighted to help. In practice much will depend on which image(s) you specifically want to use. Just because an image is on our website doesn’t mean we have the authority to allow a third party to use it, so it’s quite possible we won’t be able to help if the image in question isn’t one of our own. Please can you indicate which image(s) and we’ll let you know if we can help.

Hello, I am looking for images related to agave - historical and contemporary for a sign at the South Carolina Botanical Garden ... I found the codex pictures and wanted to know if it was possible to use them?
thank you, Sue
Mexicolore replies: Images from codices it’s unlikely we can licence to you, but we have several general photos of agaves that you’re welcome to use. We’ll contact you direct for specific requests...

I NEED MORE PICS! HOW DOY U GET TO THE PICS?
Mexicolore replies: You don’t! We don’t have an online picture library, though there are large numbers on the Aztecs site...

Hi there! I am writing a curriculum for 1-5 on the Aztecs, Maya and Inca. I am wondering if you have any photos that may highlight the architecture of the Aztec (and/or the other culutres)? I am also interested in books (in English) similar to The Sad Night, The Shawl, etc. Thanks for your help!
Mexicolore replies: With regards to pictures, probably your best bet is to browse through some of the links we have in our Aztec Links section - a good start would be Mike Ruggeri’s Aztec World site, link here -
In terms of more kids story books on the Aztecs, try The Flame of Peace by Deborah Nourse Lattimore.

I hope you could add more information on this website about Mexico. I want some info to use on my project about Mexican Government.
Mexicolore replies: This isn’t a website for general info on Mexico as a country. You should try sites like MexicoConnect, Latin America Bureau, or the site of the Mexican government itself. And/or check out our general Mexico links (see l/h menu).

i was wondering how do you access the photos in the photo library? I’m looking to licence an image of a day of the dead tree to use on a book cover? thanks
Mexicolore replies: We don’t have a glossy, easy-to-browse picture library: being a very small, specialist outfit we work on a much more personal basis. You’ll need to do one of two things: either browse our main Aztecs website (packed with images) and/or contact us and ask us what you’re looking for. Cheers!
