Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Indian design and style is enjoying a boom in popularity as more and more people discover its diverse charm and graphic invention. Kalim Winata and Reed Darmon (author of the popular Made in Japan and Made in China) have created a beautiful, and inspiring collection of vintage Indian design. The hundreds of images packed into this delightfully compact book include folk art and religious iconography, book and matchbox covers, Raj-era postcards, household product packaging and ads, Bollywood posters, toys and games, and other colorful and charming ephemera. A stylish object and graphic essay in one, Made in India is an extraordinary glimpse into the heart of Indian pop culture.

Book News Annotation:

In this compact (4.5x6") book, Winata (a Los Angeles-based expert on Asian art) and Darmon (the Portland, Oregon-based author of Made in China and Made in Japan) introduce Indian cultural images viewed through Western eyes. The colorful, captioned images include religious art, and ads for Bollywood films and products; some of the more kitschy-looking ones are intended for the global market.
