Art Effect Light of India by Warren Dotz
Light of India: A Conflagration of Indian Matchbox Art. With all the zany vibrancy of a Bollywood musical, the colorful matchbox labels of LIGHT OF INDIA present a fascinating confluence of popular culture and a sophisticated graphic arts tradition that stretches back for centuries. Populated with pouncing Bengal tigers, regal jungle elephants, and Hindu gods and goddesses, these miniature masterpieces are worlds unto themselves, skillfully illustrated with a naive yet irresistible charm. This delightful art book is sure to fire the imagination of all who wish to study, preserve, and celebrate India's more humble, but no less brilliant, visual arts heritage. $16.95
Not only handsome, and collectable, the Modern Classics 50th Anniversary Box Set from Penguin Books is also a good read.
The fonts created by HandMadeFont is next level stuff, normally I'd keep this design company a secret as long as possible, but I think it would benefit us all if more eyes see the wonderful these inspiring fonts.
