Tourism:Collaterals • Maya Codices
All the four surviving  readable Maya codices, or books, date back to the Postclassic period (AD 10001697). The Maya codices were manufactured using the inner bark of different species of amate (fig tree,  Ficus cotonifolia, Ficus padifolia). These were folded into the shape of  an accordion that can be folded and unfolded like a screen.
