Publisher's description: Covering ancient Himalayan architecture, recent projects in restoration and new directions in building and crafts, the photographer and author demonstrate the tremendous vitality, range, and potential of Himalayan forms and designs. Himalayan Style contains a treasury of images, and with Burkert's eloquent prose, this book engages readers both familiar and new to the Himalayas. Himalayan Style begins by focusing on historic structures in Bhutan, India, Nepal, and Tibet that have been renovated and often adapted for new purposes. Style is also illustrated in expressions of spiritual belief, from the distinctive shapes of stupas to offerings of flowers and tikka powder. The homes and furnishings of this region exhibit a variety of construction methods, materials, and decorative detail. Contemporary lodges for travelers in the region are also highlighted. This vibrant book celebrates creative ways of living and working in the Kathmandu Valley. Here, designers and craftsmen work together, creating innovative homes and crafts utilizing local materials and techniques. Renowned for his Himalayan photography, Thomas Kelly treats us to a personal collection of images ranging in focus from the small detail of a Tibetan tea table, to a vast mountain landscape dotted with stupas.
