Associate Professor Elio Leturia Releases New Book

Journalism Associate Professor Elio Leturia's new text presents the work of national Peruvian folk artists.

Journalism Associate Professor Elio Leturia designed the book “XVI Concurso Nacional de Nacimientos” (XVI National Nativity Contest) that was published last December by the Instituto Cultural, Teatral y Social (ICTYS) in Lima, Perú. 

The 80-page book showcases the work of 68 Peruvian artists who interpret their vision of the Christian Nativity through different media that include ceramics, stone, textiles, alabaster, wood, walnut seeds, gourds, pâpier maché, sterling silver, glass, among others. The artists come from all states in Peru. 

The book was sponsored by the Peruvian Ministry of Culture and the Catholic University of Peru. It was also supported by the Peruvian Ministry of Tourism and External Trade.
