Description
Paper is undeniably an integral part of Indian art, literature, history, and religion, but where did it come from? Comprehensive and detailed, this book—which comes in a handsome, gold-speckled slipcase—traces the nearly 1000-year history of hand papermaking in India, illustrated with 218 color photographs of the land, its art, and the artisans. Alexandra Soteriou's text discusses the ongoing evolution of the art form and its regional differences across this diverse nation, showing how the rich but turbulent history of India is reflected in its books, miniatures, scrolls, talismans, and folk papers. We regret that we cannot offer this item to our customers outside of North America.
