India Modern Traditional Forms and Contemporary Design
The look of India provides an endless source of inspiration to modern designers in the West, yet this photographic survey is the first to examine contemporary work in architecture, design and craft in the sub-continent. This book looks at the roots and themes of Indian craft and design from village society to Moghul palaces, and shows how these traditional forms are repeated in all the contemporary arts. Herbert Ypma, together with a team of photographers, travelled across India to bring together an array of images of buildings, textiles and ceramics. Together with text, these images provide an insight into the emergence of an aesthetic that truly combines the old with the new.
