Encyclopedia of India

This one is for a friend. He designed the cover and slipcase for this edition of the ‘Encyclopedia of India’ for Britannica India. I have picked the content from the Britannica India website as is.

Covering numerous facets – land and people, culture and religion, history and philosophy, technology and sports, arts and business – this all-encompassing knowledge resource is perfect for home, school, or office. Well-researched information on personalities, events, and innovations delivers an in-depth understanding of India to readers.

I have seen this one at a book store, but I hope my friend will gift me a copy 😉

Like I said this one is for a friend, in case I have inadvertently violated any copyright laws do send me a mail and I will remove this post. It will be helpful if you also put in the reason and how I had violated the rules so that I don’t commit the same error again.
