Daily Dose: The Art of Bollywood


Editor Paul Duncan’s The Art of Bollywood pays tribute to the Indian film industry’s varied artistry — and it’s not all about over-the-top musicals.

From horror to history, adventure to romance — and with a few unclassifiable choices, like Rocket Tarzan and White Face, thrown in for good measure — the featured selections make Bollywood style accessible in stunning reprints of posters, street displays, and iconic images. More than just a reflection of color-crazed, dance-happy films, these hand-painted works feature a visual language that goes beyond the stories they’re meant to represent.
