The Pigment Trail: Inspiration from the Colors, Textures, and People of India (Hardcover)
Artist Debra Luker, on her first trip to India, discovered it to be her personal artistic inspiration and instituted the popular Pigment Trail tours that introduced travelers to the amazing, transforming everyday art found there as they wander through city and countryside. Part travelogue and part artistic insight, this book is a visual adventure that transports the reader to India's creative spirit.
- Includes 208 one-of-kind visual-journal pages that allow readers to feel that they're personally breathing in the rich, artistic collage that is India's daily life and color.
- Each spread, created by Luker from her travels, provides inspiration from visuals, words, and thoughts: layered colors and surfaces; quirky sketches, signs, and graffiti; and unique and artistic items like beautiful decorative arts, spectacular architecture and furniture, or random colorful saris seen in the streets of Rajasthan.
- On each page, Luker pieces together layers of drawings, designs, and snippets of text she's captured in India to create a blend of intriguing and slightly magical creative power to inspire your next idea.
This book celebrates the India of everything handmade and its respect for traditional crafts. When life feels dull, these pages will reawaken your creative eyes.
