The book is a pictorial record of an art form that is now almost completely extinct. The range of these painting is truly awe-inspiring. They not only portray various mythological situations and instances from local folk tales but even daily chores and sometimes just images from nature.  Culled from temples, mansions, havelis and houses, these paintings are artifacts of great socio-historical importance.  The wall paintings of Gujarat is a form of representative art that traces its origins back to the seventeenth century.  The author’s extensive travels through the small towns, villages and cities of north and central Gujarat have helped him build a collection as comprehensive as it is varied and particular.
