What is it that makes Indian objects so fascinating, so touching & so right? These pieces are all designed & produced in India, & are products of modern times. Here is a packet of bidis, the label on a bottle of detergent, the sticker on a rickshaw. Seen together, the signature qualities of Indian design soon emerge -- in the little flowers that craftsmen engrave on the most ordinary of glasses & in radios that workers decorate with flashing lights. Rich in detail, comprehensive in scope, this book documents objects found & bought, from electric light bulbs in wild shapes to lopsided hand-blown glasses, tiny pink plastic boxes, & shining stainless-steel kitchen utensils. “A portrait of an India facing globalization, an India that may soon no longer exist”. Illustrations.
