These are codices
English: A codex ( Latin caudex for "trunk of a tree" or block of wood, book; plural codices) is a book in the format used for modern books, with multiple quires or gatherings (sheets of paper or vellum in multiples of two which are folded and stitched through) typically bound together and given a cover.

Some manuscripts have "codex" in their name, but they should be categorized with others in the Category:Manuscripts tree. By convention, Mesoamerican manuscripts are mostly called "Codex", even when they are not actually in codex form.
