Synopses & Reviews
Following the success of his Little Book of Hindu Deities and Ramayana: Divine Loophole, illustrator Sanjay Patel selected twelve popular Hindu deities to feature in this gorgeous print portfolio. Each full-color poster shows off Patel's cute-meets-modern graphic style, bringing Ganesha, Kali, Shiva, and nine other gods and goddesses into a 21st century Technicolor world. Colorful, playful, and iconic, the posters will be equally at home on a dorm room wall, office cubicle, or framed in a living room or kid's bedroom. Each poster also includes a black-and-white concept sketch on the back, along with descriptive text about the pictured deity.
"...a stunning large-format portfolio of 12 removable full-color posters, each bringing a revered ancient deity into the modern Technicolor world in Sanjay's signature anime-inspired vibrant graphic style. Equal parts playful, iconic, and irreverently subversive, the prints are less about reinforcing religious ideology - okay, they're actually not about that at all - than they are about exploring cultural storytelling and tradition from a fresh, unusual angel meant to delight and inspire." - Brain Picking
"Patel's illustration style is quite original and forceful. A strong sense of design, the colors and nuances of the book are very delicate, and Chronicle Books has done a wonderful job of capturing these in the printing and layout." -Michael Sporn Animation
