Beasts of India takes a lens to the beast as it is imagined and rendered in folk and tribal art traditions across India. The fine art of the original drawings has been recreated through silk-screening each image by hand. Featuring over 30 original pieces, this astonishing bestiary is a book and art collector's dream. An index of artists' names and succinct descriptions of the art conventions make it a compact and lively introduction to the unheeded genres of Indian art.

Reviews - What do customers think about Beasts of India?
great book, worth every penny Feb 19, 2007
I first came across this book in Pondicherry, India at a hotel--I was just floored with the marvelous drawings, like paintings, really, and the great paper and binding. And, you learn from the book about animals that are important in India history and mythology. I think many of the pictures would be marvelous just framed. I am not a child and would certainly put them in my library!
