Game of books

Mid Day - - DAILY DOSSIER -

Even as the hype around Sa­cred Games’ de­but on Net­flix con­tin­ues to cre­ate rip­ples, cour­tesy a well-planned thread of pro­mo­tional events, of course, ably backed by the star power act­ing in the se­ries, the orig­i­nal book by Vikram Chan­dra seems to have found plenty of tak­ers as well. And as the buzz on so­cial me­dia con­tin­ues, we picked up one par­tic­u­lar juicy anec­dote that took us back to the orig­i­nal jacket of the book. Turns out city based artist Jaideep Mehro­tra (in­set) cre­ated the art­work for it. He com­mented on the new flick, giv­ing it a dou­ble thumbs up. Close on the heels of this dis­cov­ery, this di­arist learnt that the pub­lish­ers of the book have also de­cided to pub­lish (or shall we say, re-pub­lish?) the same ti­tle in two parts us­ing in­ter­est­ing cover art­work di­rectly from the hit se­ries.
