Perhaps the first illustrated dictionary on Kathakali, this book is an authoritative compilation of terms relevant to a colorful and traditional dance form.
The dictionary has the Hastalakshana Deepika for its primary source. But the range of its coverage is wide enough to include the Natya Shastra, as well as terms that have recently come into accepted usage.
