Bookworm: Light of India - A Conflagration of Indian Matchbox Art

All of us have some kind of obsession or the other... mine among other things (don't get me started) is to collect art & design books. So I've decided that I'll share them here. This one is called Light of India - A Conflagration of Indian Matchbox Art. As an Indian formerly living in India, I grew up with imagery like this all around me. This is what Indians see every day around as part of their daily lives. It's functional, it's cheap, it's not 'Art'. I probably felt the same way when I was there. I might have still felt the same if I was still living there. But living away from India has changed so much for me. it's helped me recognise the beauty in things that I took for granted earlier. Anyway I think this book is beautiful and very inspiring and I feel very silly saying this but I'm extremely proud of it. The book is available to buy on Amazon.
