The most beautiful and inspirational colouring book available on the exquisite patterns found in Indian architecture and interiors
The variety of patterns in the exquisitely wrought details of India’s architecture and interiors is boundless, and one can only marvel at the ways in which materials such as wood, stone and plaster have been transformed into masterworks of decorative art.
Photographer and illustrator Henry Wilson has spent decades recording the pictorial imagination of the many thousands of craftsmen who have rendered abstract and representative patterns with such extraordinary patience and skill.
This beautiful new colouring book presents a range of patterns and decorative motifs from across India, allowing you to explore designs from one of the world’s greatest and most creative cultures while rendering them in colourways that are entirely your own.
Henry Wilson is known for his photographs of India, which have appeared in many magazines and books, including Benares, India Contemporary and The Floral Patterns of India, all published by Thames & Hudson. His drawings of Indian motifs inspired Osborne & Little to commission the Sariskar Collection of wallpapers from him.
