Paper Tangos Book Description:

In PAPER TANGOS, classically trained dancer and anthropologist Julie Taylor examines the poetics of the tango, while recounting a life lived crossing the borders of two distinct and complex cultures.

The book's design includes photographs on every page that form a flip-book sequence of a tango. 89 photos.
