Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in a miniature pocket format, and at an unbeatable price, India Modern ia a visually stunning compilation of modern Indian design and architecture. This beautiful book examines contemporary subcontinental design and craft and places it within the context of native traditions and history. It looks at roots and themes from village societies to Mogul places, and shows how traditional forms and methods are reinvigorated in the contemporary arts. Herbert Ypma travelled across India to bring together this array of astonishing images of buildings, textiles, ceramics and people. Together with a perceptive text on a variety of subjects (from the Indian use of colour to traditional methods of hand-looming ikat cloth), the images provide and insight into the mergence of an exciting aesthetic that combines traditional forms and contemporary designs.

Synopsis:

Originally published in 1994, this is an illustrated compilation of modern Indian design and architecture, placed in the context of the country's history and traditions. The book acts as a showcase for the leaders of the current fashion for Indian design and architecture.
