Flora of Mughal India or گلستان ھند (Gulistaan-e-Hind)


This book explores the shift in perception of nature and its representation in illuminated manuscripts in India during a time of cultural and political change (1500–1700), and how that consequently changed the art of the book and the visual representation of nature on the Indian subcontinent. A collaboration between Pandey and master craftspeople in India, this book combines letterpress printing, miniature painting, paper cutting and hand-illustrated elements.

A 20 minute talk about the process and collaborators given at CODEX Symposium in 2024 February can be found here. It begins at 34 min.
