The Opus

Courtesy: Kraken Group (the publishers of the "opus")
The Opus is more of an event than a book. It is a unique cinematic monument that results from thousands of hours of painstaking work by editors, writers, photographers, designers, printers, binders and finishers. The sheer size of each volume, along with the obsessive quest for quality means that modern production methods cannot be relied upon, and each Opus is hand-stitched, hand-bound and hand-finished to exacting standards. The nature of the production process ensures that each Opus is a one-off, limited edition that can never be repeated.


Tendulkar's Opus is supposed to get published by the end of next year. Why the end of next year? Wouldn't it be nice to have something like THE Opus compiled after his retirement? I really don't see him retiring (inspite of the elbow thing) next year. Would there be a second opus, covering the last phase of his career? Given the expected pricing, not sure how many fans of his (from the sub-continent) would be able to buy just one (forget two). Diego Maradona's opus which is supposed to get published at the end of this year is currently priced at € 4,250.00 (yeah, right). The Sachin version would probably be priced in the same range.
