Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a most surprising book. The illustrations come printed on hand made paper and detail the wall art of the women of the Meena tribe in Rajasthan, India. I purchased this book as a source of primitive pattern inspiration for developing my own designs and found the information contained in the text an added bonus and most informative. The fact that this is a hand made book only adds to it's charm.
