ABOUT THE MAGAZINE

   
Maximón (pronounced Mashimon) — Introduction

Maximón — the name isn’t one well known by the world at large. But amongst the descendants of the Mayan people, it’s a name that inspires both Reverence… and Revelry.

Maximón, or San Simón, in traditional Mayan customs, is a representation of both the dark and the light. He’s the mysterious and elusive Grandfather figure, the Venerable Wise Man, divulging sage advice and patronage upon his people in between puffs of the smoking cigar perched eternally on his lips.

This dichotomy of his nature, the revered and the reveler, also renders him as the great balancing force of the earth, the scale on which is perched both good and bad. Which is perhaps why it’s believed that individual risks throwing his life into chaos if they upset him.

He is an extremely elusive figure in both history and mythology, no one really knows where he originates, which era he occupies, and that leaves him an omnipresent figure looming over all of life, all of time itself.

And now, we wield his wild, wise, and elusive energy to color the folds of our magazine and our text, harnessing his wisdom to offer an objective opinion on the state of the world at large, and of Latin America in general.

So come forth… and be engulfed within Maximón.
