Item description for Traditional Henna Designs (A Pepin Press Design Book)...

Henna body decoration is generally practiced on festive occasions, religious ceremonies, most notably, weddings. In all cultures that practice henna painting it is the hands and feet that are commonly decorated; for weddings the designs can extend onto the arms and legs. Design motifs vary from culture to culture. For instance, North African Henna Designs tend to be geometric or composed from highly stylized flowers. Indian designs are usually drawn within a square, rectangle or circle which is then surrounded by a myriad of smaller patterns that cover the hands and lower arms, the feet and ankles. Motifs are taken from a vast Indian decorative vocabulary: Moghul flowers, Paisly patters, complicated tendril designs, stars, vines, spirals, leaves, checkerboards, water drops and waves.

Reviews - What do customers think about Traditional Henna Designs (A Pepin Press Design Book)?

pretty good..  Aug 12, 2007
I really found this book useful because not only did it have plenty of designs to choose from, but also there was a section which explained the history of Mendhi. Although the history section was not as detailed as I would have liked, I found the designs to be very interesting. All the patterns and artwork displayed in the book are phenominal and it gave me plenty of good ideas.
Awsome Design Book!!  Mar 20, 2007
I have done alot of research on mehndi design and this book is, so far, the best I've come across. It provides the more intricate traditional patterns as well as abstract floral and tribal design. I was very happy with this purchase!
great book for henna designs  Aug 1, 2005
This book has a ton of great henna designs for hands, feet, and body. Other henna books I've seen have better descriptions about the history of henna, but if you want designs to actually try out, this is the best book.
