[Pichhavai (detail) Sharad Utsava, cotton, Painted and stencilled. Deccan, late 18th century. Poster size: 12"x14.5". Calico Museum of Textiles.]
It's been over a year and I'm still debating whether or not to order a bunch of postcards (specifically repros of antique hand-blocked prints, embroideries, court fabrics, etc. with interesting borders) from India's Calico Museum of Textiles. And even though museum gift shop posters aren't my usual thing, this mini-poster, above -- a gorgeous repro of a late 18th-century hand-painted textile -- is calling out to me too. I'd use it on an inspiration board or maybe mix it on an office wall with framed photographs and original drawings.
