Ah, what a beautiful book! This album is dedicated to Rajasthan and everything surrounding it, especially in regard to aesthetics and art. Among dozens of photographs – of architecture, food, street life – you will find essays about what makes the culture of Rajasthan famous in India and beyond.
I came across fabrics or paper decorated with elaborate patterns, printed with wooden blocks, but what I found novel and curious was the chapter about marigolds, accompanied with a myriad of photos where the spectacular yellow-orange colour is the main focus. I also spent a lot of time noting down particular places from the book, which I would like to see sometime – the City Palace of Udaipur, Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, or the city of Jodhpur, bathed in hues of blue.
The album will bring you pure aesthetic pleasure and inspiration – as well as incentive to, as soon as the pandemic ends, discover Rajasthan for yourself.
