Photographer Thomas L. Kelly and author Claire Burkert present a journey through the elements of Himalayan style focusing on the regions of Tibet, Bhutan, Nepal, and India. The spirit of the place is portrayed in the stupas, chaityas, and prayer walls and flags. The forms of sacred space are represented in the dzongs, monasteries and temples. The style of priests, kings, and common man are represented in the dwellings that house them. The journey concludes with visions of the new Himalayan design. Exquisite examples of vernacular architecture, sacred spaces and interiors found in Tibet, India, Bhutan and Nepal are presented among unique chapters on contemporary style and Himalayan museums, gardens, private homes and fine crafts. A foreword by acclaimed Buddhist scholar Robert Thurman calls attention to the spiritual foundations of Himalayan aesthetics.
