Abstract:

This information book for children follows Vaghi--an Indian temple cloth printer--and his family through a few days in their lives, revealing a glimpse into the traditional way of life of Indian craftspeople in the ancient town of Ahmadabad, in the province of Gujarat, India. The book describes the processes Vaghi and his family use to create temple cloths using carved blocks and dye baths. Through the text and the fine photographs that illustrate the book, and through the images from the temple cloths themselves, a vivid snapshot of an artisan's life is revealed. An added treat for readers is that the Hindu stories represented by the images on the cloths are related at Vaghi works. This book can be used for social studies, language arts, fine arts and in any class with a multicultural focus.
