Shankar, Ann & Jenny Housego.
Bridal Durries of India.

Ahmedabad Mapin Publishing Pvt.: 1997.

"For generations women in villages of northern India have woven durries, flat tapestry, as part of the trousseau they take to their future home. Imaginative in design, bold in their use of color, the durries are treasured items. This richly illustrated book breaks new ground in exploring the background to this fascinating village tradition. It shows how the designs and motifs still in use are part of a continuous illustrative language that goes back to the ancient civilizations of the region".

Hardcover. 8"x10", 196 pages, 55 color and many black & white illustrations, dust jacket. New.
