1 Stephen P. Huyler
Daughters of India: Art and Identity
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2008; 8189995014 / 9788189995010; Hardcover; New; New; 
One in every six women in the world lives in India, more than the combined female populations of North America, the European Union and the Middle East. Yet most people outside India know little about Indian women, who often receive confusing and inaccurate press covering.Daughters of India: Art and Identity profiles 20 women from diverse communities ranging from the rice paddies of far southern India to the tea plantations of the Himalayas and from the dry western deserts to the verdant east coast. They represent every woman: the traditional and the contemporary, the repressed and the highly innovative, the outcast and the entrepreneur. In their battles against adversity, their own words express their innate strength.All these women are connected by a single thread: creative expression. Some view themselves as artists while others would be surprised to be identified in this manner, but each woman creatively embellishes her daily or seasonal life. Indian women are often completely unconscious of their artistry, and it is only recently that they have drawn any attention. Daughters of India is about change in the face of almost impossible odds, personal initiative that carves out a new identity, and implacable insistence on the recognition of human rights.

Gifts of Earth: Terracottas and Clay Sculptures of India (Text and Photographs)
Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts/Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 1996; 8185822093 / 9788185822099; Hardcover; New; New; 
Clay is essential to Indian culture, past and present. It is accessible everywhere; it takes form with very little effort; and its fragility assures its constant renewal . It has been the perfect vehicle for Indian creativity throughout the ages. The shapes and styles of items made of clay, both fired and unfired,are innumerable. They comprise everything from the minuscule to the gigantic, from simple to highly ornate, from realistic to abstract, from purely practical to utterly fantastic. Many of the potters who make them act dual roles as craftsman and as links to god.In a text sumptuously illustrated in colour, the author and photographer, Stephen P.Huyler, surveys the exciting craft through examples from all over India. he documents for the first time contemporary potters: their techniques and production, and the use of clay in the households and temples today, exploring comparison of today's products with those of ancient India.

Sonabai: Another Way of Seeing
Mapin Publishing; New Delhi, India; 2009; 8189995286 / 9788189995287; Softcover; New; 
Sonabai Rajawar was one of the few self-taught artists of India, whose story expresses the capacity of human beings every where to meet their challenges head-on, and to draw from deep within their inner resources the strength and insight to change their lives.Sonabai: Another Way of Seeing is the result of years of research by the author. Through stories, insightful documentation and evocative images in colour, he conveys Sonabai’s life and that of her family and community, portraying the remarkable productivity that resulted from her isolation, and the influence she had on the work of seven other local artists. For a decade and a half, Sonabai was forcibly removed from almost every thing she had known growing up. She found ways to transform her oppression into expressions of beauty and joy in living, creating an entirely new artistic expression with no guidance or instruction. Her art was completely different from anything ever seen in India before—a world of colour, light, and whimsy—all her own. Printed Pages: 128 with 178 colour photographs. 112003
