Now in a miniature pocket form, and at an unbeatable price, India Modern is a visually stunning compilation of modern Indian design and architecture. This beautiful book examines contemporary sub-continental design and craft and places it within the context of native traditions and history. It looks at roots and themes from village societies to Mogul palaces, and shows how traditional forms and methods are reinvigorated in the 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 Indian 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.
