This mini paperback presents a photographic compilation of modern Indian craft, design and architecture, placed in the context of Indian history and traditions. It looks at the roots and themes of Indian craft and design from village society to Moghul palaces, and shows how these traditional forms are repeated in all the contemporary arts. Herbert Ypma, together with a team of photographers, travelled across India to bring together an array of images of buildings, textiles and ceramics. Together with text, these images provide an insight into the emergence of an aesthetic that truly combines the old with the new.
