  • fabulous work

    (More than year ago) By, john hank

    It is one of the most exhaustive work i have ever seen till now on the wooden traditional houses of Gujarat. I had the chance to meet the author when in india. A single handed work is highly appreciative. It deals in thorough detail about the wood and the forms achieved by the means of carving in the traditional built forms. The drawings are marvellous and done with meticulous details.
