Patterns of India

A Colouring Book

Henry Wilson


Make this extraordinary range of patterns and decorative motifs your own

See Inside


The variety of patterns in the exquisitely wrought details of India’s architecture and interiors is boundless, and one can only marvel at the ways in which materials such as wood, stone and plaster have been transformed into masterworks of decorative art.

Photographer and illustrator Henry Wilson has spent decades recording the pictorial imagination of the many thousands of craftsmen who have rendered abstract and representative patterns with such extraordinary patience and skill. This beautiful new colouring book presents a range of patterns and decorative motifs from across India, allowing you to explore designs from one of the world’s greatest and most creative cultures while rendering them in colourways that are entirely your own.
