Oblong quarto [28 cm by 19cm]. Beige paper boards with orange cloth spine. Twenty four leaves with tipped-in paper samples. Printed on Gunny waterleaf paper. The pages and the paper samples were made at the Sri Aurobindo Mill in Pondicherry, Tamil Nadu. Near fine.


An interesting work documenting the resurgence of papermaking in India. Due to the presence of the Sri Aurobindo ashram and the associated international township of Auroville, the area has become something of a center for craftspeople.
