My favourite books in the collection do not come from Open Calls but from our own research in Peru and China. That also makes me uncomfortable. The fact that we have a lot of authored books in the collection made by people from the US and Europe, and then a lot of (much more interesting) books from third world countries that are anonymous. I feel that we owe something to the people who replied to the Open Call, but we treat the books from third world countries as our discoveries.
