Sultana’s Dream
Sultana’s Dream

Author: Begum Rokheya Sakhawat Hossain; Artist: Durga Bai


Sultana’s Dream first appeared in 1905, ten years before the American feminist and novelist, Charlotte P. Gilman, published her feminist utopia Herland. Sultana’s Dream is an appealing story of reversed purdah – the seclusion of women – in Ladyland, where peace-loving women overpower aggressive men through the power of their brains.


New

This edition of Sultana’s Dream is a fascinating dialogue across time and cultures: Durga Bai, a brilliant woman artist from the Gond tribe of central India, has drawn her response to this hundred-year old feminist fable, adding a new layer of meaning to a classic text.

Artisan Camera
Artisan Camera

Christopher Pinney; Suresh Punjabi


Artisan Camera is a testimony to an era of hands-on studio photography, when physical materials combined with the photographer’s artistry to shape the final image.

This book features work from Studio Suhag in Nagda, a small town in central India. Suresh Punjabi–the studio’s proprietor and photographer–showcases some of his vintage photographs from the 1970s and 1980s. They evoke a world where the studio portrait was an important memento, capturing not just the ‘real’ subject, but also a persona made over to meet the camera’s eye. A richly argued essay by visual anthropologist Christopher Pinney–author of Camera Indica–places Punjabi’s work in the context of a visual history.
