    Wonderful quality of printing, photos and selection of patterns.The only problem is that it is not exhaustive I guess that would run into volumes.This book mainly covers patterns from architectural monuments from the North West region, and not the whole of India, hence I would ideally give it 1 star lessNevertheless a great buy purely because of its quality and glimpses offered of the rich collection of patterns in India, something difficult to find in other books and at this price range Hence the 5 starsWould make a perfect gift for anyone interested in arts architecture
