Tradición Revista Magazine

One of the most comprehensive locations for information on art and culture in the Southwest, we feature information on santos (saints), traditional and contemporary Native American and Hispanic arts, Southwestern history, books.

Tradición Revista, the only magazine in the United States that features Native American and Hispanic art and culture as a regular feature, is published by LPD Press.

LPD Press is a book publisher whose mission is to share the stories of tradition, faith, history, culture, and art found in the Hispanic Southwest. The LPD Press book list includes biographies, histories, art, and research. We frequently emphasize the devotional arts of the Southwest. Rio Grande Books is a regional book publishing company that features books on Southwestern history and culture.

Faith and art have always been bound together, especially in the Southwest and the Pueblos and old Hispanic villages of New Mexico. LPD Press has built a regional publishing company whose mission is to share the stories of faith, history, culture, and art found in the Hispanic Southwest. Rio Grande Books has taken that foundation and has expanded beyond the boundaries of New Mexico and explores the history and culture of the entire Southwest. Together, they are recording tradition.

"Among their books are works on Hispanic pottery and historical works about Archbishop Jean Baptiste Lamy and Frank Applegate, who helped develop the art movement in New Mexico" -- Albuquerque Journal
