Realms of Wonder: Jain, Hindu and Islamic Art of India is a lavishly illustrated, full-colour book that makes a superb introduction to the richly diverse art of India from the eighth century to the present day. This magnificent book is the first Australian publication to explore the spiritually inspired art of the three main religions of India – Jainism, Hinduism and Islam. Across more than 200 pages, it beautifully represents the many exquisite works of art, from paintings and sculptures to textiles and decorative art objects – some of them rarely or never previously seen in public. It also includes enlightening essays from nineteen specialist scholars and writers from India, Europe, North America and Australia.
