Reviews

"This is a book that opens your eyes to exactly how much beauty in Britain we owe to India and how we once celebrated the skill and talent of that country."--, Kirsty Stonell Walker, Fanny Cornworth--Kirsty Stonell Walker"Fanny Cornforth" (02/04/2017)
"Only now, with the beautiful and illuminating catalogue, John Lockwood Kipling: Arts and Crafts in the Punjab and London, which accompanies an exhibition presently moving from London's Victoria and Albert Museum to the Bard Graduate Center Gallery in New York, do I fully appreciate the man, his art and his eye."-Maxwell Carter, Wall Street Journal--Maxwell Carter "Wall Street Journal "
"This is a beautifully produced volume. Its red front cover sports a whimsical gold--embossed self-portrait of Kipling sketching, and it is richly illustrated throughout. Running to practically 600 large pages, it is much, much more than a catalogue. No one with an interest in either of the Kiplings, or their milieux, can afford to miss it."--Jacqueline Bannerjee, Victorian Web-- (02/01/2017)
"A beautiful catalogue, richly illustrated. But what stands out is the highest grade of sensitive and scholarly writing that as well as bringing perspectives to the subject, brings to life those times and places - ranging from curating craft to casting techniques to social snobbery such as would have been experienced by someone from non-elite origins."--Avtar Bhatoa, Decorative Arts Society Newsletter Summer 2017
