This paper studies Latin American clipping magazines from the first half of the 20th century as digests of world press or “digestive” systems in a material way. This digestive system, based on clipping and pasting in a new context, can be explained by identifying different operations which set the basis for a methodology for the analysis of this kind of magazines. In order to do this, the paper proposes a theoretical and critical discussion to think digestion and to give a description of this methodology, which is then exemplified in two specific cases: one from Babel. Revista de revistas (1939-1940), during his Chilean period edited by Enrique Espinoza, and the other from Ultra. Revista de revistas (1936-1947), Cuban magazine directed by ethnographer Fernando Ortiz.
