World Scenography is a book series that documents significant contemporary theatrical design worldwide since 1975. It is an official project of OISTAT, the International Organisation of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians. The international editorial team for World Scenography is led by co-editors Peter McKinnon (Canada) and Eric Fielding (USA). The Zbigniew Raszewski Theatre Institute has been involved in the project since 2010. There has been no comprehensive documentation of global scenography since the four-volume series Stage Design Throughout the World, by Belgian professor René Hainaux, covered the period 1935–1975. This new series will cover the periods of 1975–1990, 1990–2005, and 2005–2015 respectively. The first volume was launched at the USITT Conference in Long Beach, California, in March 2012 and in 2014 it received the USITT’s Golden Pen Award.
