We have a cover!
The project has taken rather longer than expected to finish, but we're virtually there now. The book has grown significantly from what we originally planned (from 120,000 to about 190,000 words!), as we've continued to find and incorporate lots of new and fascinating material. We think it's a better, more comprehensive book as a result. This week, we got the cover design from Penguin. Here it is for your viewing pleasure.
We're very excited that the project is finally coming to completion, even though we are running about a year over schedule! Thanks so much for your patience and continued support. The publication date is likely to be January 2016, so hang in there: it's on its way!
In other news, in October we (Jim and Mark) will be joining forces with Dr. Jason Birch to begin a five year European Research Council project at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London, called The Haṭha Yoga Project (HYP). We will be making editions of ten key texts of haṭhayoga, as well as working on many articles and several books. It's a great opportunity to look into some very important and little understood aspects of yoga's history.
Mark and Jim.
