  • 6. Crafts & Design NEW Sonabai Another Way of Seeing Stephen P Huyler, with a foreword by Leslie Umberger The art of Sonabai Rajawar has no precedent. She is one of the few self- taught artists of India, whose story expresses the capacity of human beings everywhere to meet their challenges head-on, and to draw from deep within their inner resources the strength and insight to change their lives. Sonabai: Another Way of Seeing is the result of years of research by the author. Through stories, insightful documentation and evocative images in colour, he conveys Sonabai’s life and that of her family and community, portraying the remarkable productivity that resulted from her isolation, and the influence she had on the work of seven other local artists. For a decade and a half, Sonabai was forcibly removed from almost everything she had known growing up. Undaunted, she found ways to transform her oppression into expressions of beauty and joy in living, creating an entirely new artistic expression with no guidance or 128 pages, 178 colour photographs, with a DVD instruction.

  • 8. Painting NEW Raja Ravi Varma Painter of Colonial India Rupika Chawla Ravi Varma (1848–1906) was closely connected with the erstwhile royal house of Travancore. He was one of the first Indian painters to successfully adopt Western painting techniques and adapt academic realism to the visual interpretation of Indian mythology. His genre of paintings, which eventually lead to chromolithographs (oleographs), has maintained a lasting effect on the Indian sensibility, making him the best-known classical painter of the modern era. This book is an account of Ravi Varma’s traditional background and environment and the manner in which they related to the modernization of colonial India; his profession as an aristocratic itinerant painter, his royal patrons, his portraits and the analysis of his mythological and iconic paintings; his influence on the Indian mindset, the sources used by him and his controversial status from the late 19th century till today even while contemporary painters continue to be inspired by his art and his attitude. The book is lavishly illustrated with pictures taken from princely and private collections and museums. These also appear in the book among the works that have never been seen before, previously undisclosed maps, letters, photographs and other archival material.

  • 10. Crafts & Culture NEW Temple Potters of Puri Louise Allison Cort and Purna Chandra Mishra This book is the first to describe in detail a community of potters working for the Jagannatha Temple in Puri, and to explore how the role of temple servant affects the potters’ understanding of their work and of themselves. As a pilgrimage centre of national importance, supported by the patronage of successive regional dynasties and by fervent popular belief, the Jagannatha Temple requires earthenware in great quantities for the creation and distribution of the sacred food that is an integral feature of daily ritual and pilgrimage. Three hundred potters participate as temple servants in maintaining the temple’s ritual cycle by performing their divinely assigned task. This study, conducted in 1979–1981, observes the potters’ technical prowess, sustained by devotion, but also examines the tensions within their relationships to more powerful temple servants and authorities.

Art NEW Sensibility Objectified The Sculputres of Sarbari Roy Choudhury R Siva Kumar The sculptural sensibility of Sarbari Roy Choudhury represented in this monograph is figurative and animated, revealing the artist’s connection with the Indian traditions of sculpture, despite the influences from his contacts with the West. Roy Choudhury is a modeller in the best modernist tradition, for whom sculpture is the magical act of turning clay into flesh. Like the work of many modern artists his figures often seem to exist outside the rationale of naturalism, but they are seldom dehumanized.

A figurative sculptor, who pursues perfection, he is also a portraitist of great sensitivity, for whom music is the greatest inspiration.

  • 15. Architecture Royal Tombs of India 13th to 18th Century A S Bhalla Royal Tombs of India is a first-of-a-kind book on the Islamic royal tombs in India, providing a rare insight into lesser-known facts about the history and evolution of tomb architecture. It focuses on the tombs of Tughluq, Lodi, Qutb Shahi and Mughal dynasties. These tombs are among the most magnificent pieces of Islamic architecture and grandeur. The Hindu and Persian Safavid influences in pre-Mughal and Mughal tombs in a central theme of the book, and the historical and architectural contexts of the dynasties are also described. The author traces history of royal tombs— from the Egyptian pyramids, Greek/Roman mausoleums and the Chinese royal tombs to Islamic tombs of Central Asia, Pakistan and India.

Mosques of Cochin Patricia Tusa Fels The book documents the surviving vernacular mosques of Cochin—the jewel of the trading culture of the Malabar Coast of Kerala, and where historic patterns of an urban trading culture remain visible in the buildings and layout of the city. Sited in compounds replete with coconut palms, the mosques offer an oasis of tranquillity in densely populated neighbourhoods. Large wood-framed pyramidal roofs, deep overhangs, and fine wooden craftsmanship distinguish the Kerala vernacular. The mosques of Cochin stand as powerful and visible expressions of the integration of Islam into the culture of Malabar. However, they are hardly mentioned in architectural histories or heritage surveys. This book brings recognition to them as highly valued resources. Patricia Tusa Fels is an architect and historic preservationist, who has 80 pages, 40 b&w and 30 colour photographs been involved in conservation projects in the US, Europe and Asia.
