This delightful colouring book introduces young readers (and their older relatives as well!) to the art of India—found everywhere from monuments and textiles, to sidewalks, vehicles, movies, and objects of everyday use!
With 34 attractive illustrations, this volume introduces readers and young artists to a broad spectrum of Indian art, beginning with the seals of the vanished Indus valley civilisation right up to exuberant movie posters of today. The book also takes the reader through patterns of embroidery, folk art, performing art, murals, matchboxes, mehendi and more! This enchanting activity book provides ample inspiration for a curious young mind.
