Iquitos: A window to the Amazon

The Telefonica Foundation is a nonprofit worldwide organization dedicated to promoting innovation and social progress. Their passion for innovative design and thoughtful exploration was translated to this book, which offers a wild “amazon-ing” journey.

This project tells the story, complexity, worldview, contemporary life, and potential of Iquitos, the capital city of Loreto, a region set on the Peruvian rainforest.

The project captures its social, cultural, and ecological dimensions. It’s a compilation of essays written by prestigious intellectuals and academics that highlight the city and its role in the history and development of the Peruvian jungle.
