The aim of the present paper is the study of the action performed by the publishing industry in the context of the transposition into digital format of printed books comprising a Latin American and Caribbean literary corpus. The designed corpus includes works and authors labelled as a Latin American segment of the Western Canon, in addition to those segments provided by feminist, queer, postcolonial, and/or decolonization critical theories. It is described/defined the digital ecosystem to which the corpus is transposed as well as some of the strategies implemented by the major e-book trade platforms and the main digital libraries to offer Latin American and Caribbean literature transposed into digital format are described/defined. Likewise, a reading extended to the influence of the postcolonial turn is proposed by considering cartonera publishing as a device of the postcolonial turn but, this time, widening the range of typographic forms as well as the postcolonial effect on the publishing field.
