Publisher Comments:

Over the last five thousand years, Indian artists have developed a wide range of unique and decorative artistic styles. This rich collection of copyright-free designs and motifs draws on that heritage to provide today's artists and designers with a stimulating and practical archive of usable material.

In this volume are designs adapted from seals, dolls, and toys of the Harappa culture; punch-marked coins and pottery from South India; Ajanta and Bagh murals; Muslim monuments; Buddhist temples; textiles from Gujarat, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, and other regions; and much more.

Embodying the variety and complexity of traditional Indian design, the motifs in this collection will be of immediate use to artists and illustrators as well as providing an exciting glimpse into the rich store of Indian decorative art.

Synopsis:

Incredibly rich treasury of authentic royalty-free designs from Harappa culture, Ajanta and Bagh murals, Muslim monuments, Buddhist temples, much more. Immediately usable or great for design inspiration.
