Format: Paperback
I have always been fascinated by all things Indian and was pretty impressed by this book. The glossy pictures are of a very high standard and range from natural shots of local people, to stunning scenes of the countryside and buildings, to beautiful photos of interiors. These interior pictures are the best part of the book in my opinion, they are a kaleidoscope of colours and show both modest and affluent homes, all of which are so interesting.
I would recommend this book to anyone that is interested in architecture, interior designs or India itself. It's a real insight!

If you've ever bought a book and been disappointed that there weren't enough pictures, then the Taschen `Icons' range is probably just what you want. Indian Style is edited by Angelika Taschen with photographs by Deidi von Schaewen. Indian Style doesn't preach or teach or tell you what to think - instead it places beautiful coloured images in front of you and lets the reader - or rather viewer - make of them what they choose to. In contrast with other similar books, I also like that all the photographs are from just one photographer because it means the images knit together more coherently than in a multi-photographer book.

The book splits the photographs into four chapters. Angelika Taschen gets a page or two to introduce the book with a preface entitled "Why is India so beautiful?" which is one of those questions that anyone who's spent time in the country will recognise as a simple and very searching question. She offers a few suggestions but it's up to you to decide whether she answers the question - in any of the three languages in which the text is offered. With Angelika's musings out of the way we're straight into the wonderful ingulgence of looking at pictures.

The photographic chapters are Landscapes, Houses, Interiors and Details. In the first three photo chapters all of the pictures are double spread shots so you do get a good sized picture. Only in the final chapter on `details' are some of the pictures offered in portrait form but even then they resist the temptation to put two different pictures on each view, opting instead for a blank coloured page to offset the main image.

An odd yet beautiful book - add some mysticism to your home & life 26 Oct 2009
By Mad Max - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Before buying this book, I suggest you click around on the "look inside this book" feature.

I suspect you will agree - this book is filled with beautiful, intriguing stories & photos of all sorts of homes, furniture, buildings, etc from India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

I'm not really sure how to classify this book, but it has lots of great home, decoration, and furniture ideas. It's mostly a photo book, but it also has some stories and quotes. This is also an inspirational source for painting & colors, or just anyone interested in learning more about the far East.

As Advertised 24 Mar 2013
By audio lover - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
When Indian Style arrived (on time and in excellent condition) I was a little disappointed in its size (8"x5"). But aside from that, it was what it said it was, an overview of home decor from the Indian sub-continent. The photographs were clear, closeup views of traditional-style homes owned by affluent and more modest families. No modern sky-scraper apartments were included or expected. I enjoyed the book and may try my own version of a painted wall that I saw here. So perhaps the book is big enough.

Magnificent color sense at work. 4 Mar 2014

The folk artifacts and hand made objects were just a delight to see. The color combinations seemed daring, tribal, and yet very fresh to the Western eye. Again, TASCHEN did not disappoint.
