This month, we are pleased to support World Poetry Day, which takes place every year on 21st March. This day was first adopted by UNESCO in 1999, and while many countries celebrate their own national or international poetry days, World Poetry Day has the aim of “supporting linguistic diversity through poetic expression and increasing the opportunity for endangered languages to be heard”.
Our March Book of the Month is Architectural Voices of India: A Blend of Contemporary and Traditional Ethos by Apurva Bose Dutta.
This March, our Editorial Advisory Board member Narcís Bassols has chosen his ‘Recommended Read’: one of our best-selling titles, noteworthy for the contribution it makes to its field.
