The Yayasan Bali Purnati (The Bali Purnati Center For The Arts) held a very Balinese book launching at a gala reception on Sunday, September 4, 2005, at Griya Gede Keniten. The formal hosts for the launching of the book - Sanur, The Birthplace of Bali Style was Sanur's village elder, Ida Bagus Tjethana Putra and his extended family at their quintessential Balinese family compound in Sanur.

Stylish and Balinese in every detail, the evening included a number of orchestras, both traditional and modern; a fashion show; some of the earliest film clips ever made of Bali; and a lavish array of outstanding Balinese cuisine.

Sanur, The Birthplace of Bali Style is the first book dedicated exclusively to the fascinating history and development of Sanur Community. Written by seven authors - Christopher Carlisle, Bruce Carpenter, Vaughan Hatch, Putu Evie Suyadnyani, Richard Lewis, Lorca Lueras and Miranda Suryadjaja; the volume was designed and photographed by Leonard Lueras, the director of the Publications Division of the Yayasan Bali Purnati. Additional photography was provided by Jason Childs, Jan Lovett and Gil Rosellini.

Sanur, The Birthplace of Bali Style is the third book published by the Yayasan Bali Purnati. Previous titles include a book about Ubud (Ubud Is A Mood), a book about I La Galigo, the creation epic of the Bugis people of Makassar. A fourth book, Kuta and Kuta, is slated for imminent release.

Chapters of the Sanur book include special essays on the history of Sanur, the art of Sanur, the music and dance of Sanur, Sanur style, voices of Sanur, the magic of Sanur and surfing in Sanur.
