Comprehensive and detailed, this book traces the nearly thousand year history of hand papermaking in India, from the ancient sites in Gilgit and the Himalayas, through heartland Mathura, Agra, Daulatabad to the western sites in Rajasthan and Gujarat, to Pondicherry on the Bay of Bengal. Illustrated with numerous colour photographs, the story is revealed through India's visual art: books, miniatures, drawing scrolls, talismans, papier maché Interwoven with religion, political conquest and repression, the discovery of papermaking ruins, and formulas, methods, memories and migration routes recalles by Kagzi, the traditional papermaking families, Gift of Conquerors creates a rich historic picture not seen before.

In the years hat followed she continued her fieldwork in India, Pakistan and Nepal, eventually becoming a consultant for UNIDO and USAID commissioned to help revitalize the papermaking craft.
