The Traditions of Northern India: A Study of Arts, Architecture and Crafts in Haryana

Ranbir Singh (Editor) Bhup Singh Gulia (Author)
Synopsis Bhup Singh Gulia have done a remarkable job in generating primary information about the text of the book and enriched it with pictorial representations depicting various unknown elements of folk art and crafts that could be gathered from Haryana.  A large number of distinctive forms and styles, in respect of arts and crafts invented and developed by the people of Haryana that accompany the text as photographic representations and illustrations in various chapters of the book, seem to be a novel attempt for scholarly documentation and evaluation about the material referred in the Book.  this artistically produced book speaks enough about the time and energy spent in meticulous collection of information and photography and presenting the whole thing in a methodical and intellectually honest manner.  It is presumed that the book as well the efforts of the authors will be appreciated by the common reader, those having interest in history of art & crafts of the village communities and, of course, the scholars.
