Tuna posters. Enrique Pérez Penedo collection


It brings together more than 300 posters made for the promotion of competitions and events of tunas. The collection was formed by Enrique Pérez Penedo, tuno, cartoonist and graphic designer, who donated it to the University of Alicante to its processing and dissemination.

The interest of the collection lies in its uniqueness, in its subject matter as related to University life, in its wide chronological coverage (covers from 1970 to the present day), in the information provided and the artistic value of the posters, made often by creators of prestige.

The collection continues to receive new additions.

With the aim of their dissemination, these materials have been digitized and collected in a web catalog, called the Portal of images, together with all graphic documents of the General archive of the University. The consultation for this catalogue gives access to the image of the documents. Access to the Portal of images

General archive also offers the possibility to consult the originals in the dependencies of the file itself and making reproductions, provided that the motives of the applicant justify it and copyright and preservation of the material conditions allow it. In addition, these documents may be requested on loan, under the conditions laid down by the University, to collaborate with interesting cultural, educational or scientific activities.
