About Book
Mookerjee's book on Tantra art was first released in 1963 and has gone on to become a minor publishing hit, being reprinted in various formats over the years. This a magnificent piece of work: a large format hardback with 97 color plates (most of them full page) with intelligent and wide-ranging commentary on each image. With an introduction and an 8 page bibliography. Cloth over boards on glossy stock with a heavy dustjacket. This offers up art in the larger Tantra tradition: paintings, graphic works, sculptures and objects all spinning off from a broadly-defined sanskrit tradition of Tantra (weaving or weaving-in-continuity.) The result is a mind-bender that comments on all sorts of traditions in Eastern thought and art: Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, Jain
