2. Real Academia Española

The Real Academia Española is the institution that determines, definitively, what constitutes the official Spanish language. This project offers a critique of the demographic makeup of this committee by cataloguing the 50 people who comprise the RAE.

Each of these individuals are assigned a letter of the Spanish alphabet upon induction to this institution. Alongside each letter in the book, I listed words that are commonly used in the Spanish vernacular but don’t exist within the dictionary itself. Risograph and handbound.
