In 2015 HUP launched the Murty Classical Library of India, a series intended to present the greatest literary works of India from the past two millennia. The series aims to reintroduce these works, a part of world literature’s treasured heritage, to a new generation. Translated into English by world-class scholars, reflecting the highest standards of contemporary book design, and featuring elegant, newly commissioned typefaces, these volumes are a modern invitation to diverse pre-modern literary worlds in languages such as Bangla, Hindi, Kannada, Marathi, Pali, Panjabi, Persian, Sanskrit, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu, and Urdu. The series will provide English translations of classical works alongside the Indic originals in the appropriate regional script. New books will be added to the series annually.
Beyond the 200 new books Harvard produces annually, Tim has also been involved in the design, production, and management of the Loeb Classical Library, the I Tatti Renaissance Library, and the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library. Recently HUP and Loeb launched the digital version of the library.
