India Modern is a visually stunning compilation of modern Indian design and architecture. This beautiful book examines contemporary sub-continental design and craft, to identify it within the context of native traditions and history. It explores the vast range of roots and themes from village societies to Mogul palaces, to illustrate how traditional forms and methods are reinvigorated in contemporary arts.

Herbert Ypma travelled across India to bring together this array of astonishing images of buildings, textiles, ceramics and people. Together with a perceptive text on a variety of subjects - from the use of colour to traditional methods of hand-looming ikat cloth - the images provide an insight into the emergence of an exciting aesthetic that combines traditional forms and contemporary designs.
