The Making Of A Modern Indian Artist-craftsman
Devi Prasad (1921--2011), India's pioneering artist-potter, visionary educationist and pacifist, joined Santiniketan, India's premier art school in 1938 when founder Rabindranath Tagore was siill involved with the institution. At Nandalal Bose's suggestion and following a correspondence with Gandhi in 1944 lie joined Sevagrara, Gandhi's ashram, as Art Teacher, where he taught for nearly twenty years. His political consciousness saw him participate actively in the Quit India Movement in 1942 and in social reforms such as Vinoba Bhave's Bhoodan---the land gift movement of the 1940s and 1950s.
Apart from the making of his personal history and his times, this book leads us to why the creative act of making art itself takes on such a fundamental philosophical significance in his life --- an ideal derived directly from his absorption of Gandhi's principles. The purpose of art and life as they came to be realised by him, needed a change in the very approach people have toward work, which could only be achieved through a new philosophy of education. This book argues for an aesthetic basis for India's freedom movement whereby the Arts and Crafts Movement's pioneers like John Ruskin, William Morris, Charles Ashbee and William Lethaby impacted the writings and work of Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore and Ananda K. Coomaraswamy as seen in The ideology of `Swadeshi' --- India's rallying cry for Freedom and the artistic milieu of Santiniketan. Devi Prasad's story, then, exemplifies the importance of the Arts and Crafts Movement in shaping the nature of Modernism in India.
Devi Prasad's ideals in art and in political activism, shaped though they may have been on Indian soil, led him to crisscross international borders. In 1962 he migrated to London to become Secretary General (later Chairman) of The War Resisters' International, perhaps the oldest Pacifist organisation in the world in order to spread the Gandhian way of life internationally. Here his artwork underwent another transformation, cognisant of the realities of Western living. On his return to India in 1982, he began to work more concertedly on pottery: developing a community of studio-potters, their studios, tools and equipment. This book reveals, against a backdrop of Modern Indian history and international peace movements, how the worlds of `design', craftsmanship and studio art were negotiated via a philosophical quest to bring about social change.

Get relief - Creative Relief!
Creative Relief coloring books are for kids, grown-ups and anyone else in need of coloring therapy. Even if you aren't stressed and just need a little color in your life, Creative Relief coloring books offer a variety of designs and images to color, ranging from simple open patterns to intricate and puzzling coloring challenges.
Features you get in Creative Relief coloring books:
A matte-finish coverto reduce visibility of exterior scratches and greasy fingerprints. Coloring frequently involves snacking. No judging.
A low page count per book and a creased cover make it easier to open the book flat for coloring.
White interior paper to let the true hue of the colors you choose fill the page. Baby pink shouldn't look like baby puke.
60# interior paper weight, not traditional coloring book pulp/newspaper. This provides a stronger surface for crayons and colored pencils. However, some markers and paint may bleed through.
Single-sided pages no pictures on the back (and NEW- a blackened page back) means no damage to the next piece of art from bleed through. This also allows for art to be removed (for framing, making paper airplanes, lining the bird cage, whatever) without missing-out on the next art piece.
No double page layouts and space from the interior binding so the whole picture can easily be colored.
A blank testing page specifically for testing your coloring mediums and hues before applying. No more test slashes and dots on the page of your art!
A bleed through page to use with mediums like markers and paint that may bleed.
Vortex Wakes Of Aircrafts
The book presents methods of mathematical modeling of vortex wakes of aircraft in flights at high altitudes and close to the ground at take-off-landing regimes. The modeling is based on an extensive application of the method of discrete vortices in aircraft flights at high altitudes and on a conjugation of this method with the integral method of predicting the turbulent boundary layer which is produced at the secondary wall transversal flow induced by the aircraft vertex system at take-of-landing regimes. In this latter case an interaction between the vortex wake of aircraft and the secondary vortices generated at boundary layer separations is taken into account.
The authors consider separately methods of modeling the near and far vortex wakes of aircrafts with turbojets and air propellers and they present the results of predicting vortex wakes of a series of domestic and foreign aircrafts. The effect of number of factors is taken into account in these cases: turbulence and atmosphere stratification, presence of side wind at take- off-landing regimes.
The computer time consumption while modeling the vortex wakes according to the proposed method is 3 - 4 orders less than in the case of using the well-known numerical methods.
The non-linear non-stationary mathematical model of light aircraft movement when they enter the vortex wake of a heavy aircraft with a description of possible catastrophic consequences for the light aircraft is considered separately. A comparison between the prediction data and the experimental results is given.
The book is intended for researchers and engineers, as well as for lecturers, post-graduate and undergraduate students.
