The design industry could stand to appreciate more than just its American, Western European and Japanese roots. John Manschot brings us a little closer to the Indian sub-continent in his book, The Art of Bollywood Blockbusters. The Web site includes some so-so scans that barely do justice to the plethora of exquisitely illustrated posters and videocovers from the world’s largest film industry. Last year I got my hands on a copy of Thai Graphic Design by Anake Nawigamune, which is also big, bold and beautiful impossible to find domestically, but now you have an excuse to visit Thailand.
