Wonder of the Age: Master Painters of India, 1100-1900

Wonder of the Age: Master Painters of India, 1100-1900 - Jorrit Britschgi, John Guy What a jewel of a book!. Beautiful paintings, exquisite reproductions. I cannot get tired of Mughal painting, nor of any other kind of manuscript illustrations or illuminations, whether they be Irish celtic, or Carolingian, or early Spanish Romanesque, or French Gothic, or Ottoman, or Coptic Egyptian, or Persian, or Mughal... This book deserves now repeated and careful looking, with a magnifying glass.
