ELOQUENCE IN STONE - Review in Sunday Times, 6 April 2008

A story in stone

An ancient and rich heritage, dating back hundreds of years, eclipsed into 475 pages of images. Eloquence in Stone, a new book published by Studio Times features glimpses of Sri Lanka's history and culture through some of its finest heritage sites and beautiful scenes from around the island. Consisting of 475 pages of colour and black and white photographs, the book features the work of Nihal Fernando, Anu Weerasuriya, Luxshman Nadaraja, Christopher Silva, Devaka Seneviratne and Roshan Perret with text by Sinharaja Tammita Delgoda.

Eloquence in Stone is a story in stone, that of Sri Lanka's rich heritage through the ages. It is a strange, sometimes amazing saga of Sri Lanka's history. It is a story of the art and craft, architecture, sculpture and painting of our people, a pictorial narration of a world shaped by its environment.

Initiated by Nihal Fernando, Eloquence in Stone has been over 15 years in the making, and features many rare and ancient sites lying in remote villages and jungles of the country. The standard selling price of the book is Rs.11,000 and the introductory price Rs. 9,800. A special pre-publication price offer valid until April 30 is Rs 8,000. The book is to be released in October.
