Director Luis Mateo compared this moment to the period in which it was necessary to adapt to the high-speed digital printing system through Risograph, manufactured in Japan.

‘We have to do it now to make use of all digital potentials,’ he highlighted.

One of the challenges took place when the Marzo literario (Literary March) initiative was launched across the country, a virtual festival included in the Day of the Cuban Book Institute.

‘Only the authors of the 17 books whose publication, due to the pandemic, had been delayed, are being recorded for the time being, but they have been finished and are being currently sold at bookstores in the province,’ he said.

Ediciones Luminaria has resorted to digital creation since 2012, he claimed.

This publishing house celebrated its 20-year integration to the country’s Territorial Editions System in December, 2020, with the satisfaction of having nearly five million copies and more than 7,000 books.
