3) “Scenography: An Indian Perspective” by Satyabrata Rout

(Theatre | Format: Hardcover | MRP: 2,005 INR)

BLURB: Scenography is the art of ‘writing the stage space’—a visual journey of unmaking and remaking the text on a theatre space, a language of the spectatorial senses. However, this dialect of space and props, though prevalent in the West from the early days of the Greek plays, unfortunately has never been groomed and appropriated in the long theatre tradition of the Orient—until a bunch of new practitioners and scholars decided to explore the field of design and change the narrative of space in recent times. Yet with hardly any documentation available in the backdrop of indigenous theatre, there was a need of a practical treatise for quite a long time.
“Scenography: An Indian Perspective” unearths this astonishing yet silent contribution of ‘stage’ design in Indian theatres throughout the ages and the comparatively recent appropriation of it.

4) “The Most Incredible Olympic Stories” by Luciano Wernicke

(Sports | Format: Hardcover/Kindle | MRP: 404 INR)

BLURB: The Olympics holds the podium of the greatest sporting contest — an event that is 'global' in the truest sense of the term.
“The Most Incredible Olympic Stories” maps the phenomenal journey of this marvellous event through time immemorial—from its genesis to its glory days—with lore of myth, magic, and gallantry in every turn of its long-walked path, where dirty politics went hand in hand with fair play, universal fraternity was welcomed in the backdrop of a genocide, strong woman were often questioned about their 'womanhood', a fair-skinned man risked his glory to stand for the Black, the dark horse failed to surprise and the unpredictable often surprised.
Luciano has already unearthed numerous stories of sports, unveiling the myths behind, which have been read in fifteen languages. This time he curates the oldest sporting tale— a tale that becomes the narrative of a modern civilisation.
