with Soumitri Varadarajan and Anurag Gupta • Book Design • NIO, Goa • India

The Sewn Boats of Lakshadweep documents the traditional boat making technique used in the Lakshadweep Islands off the West coast of India. These ‘Odam’ boats use local materials – essentially coconut and coir to literally ‘Sew’ the planks of wood together. The book documents the entire process in great detail.
