Cock: Indian Firework Art
by Peter Nagy
Publisher's Description
"Like any other form of Indian art, this collection of stunning images is an all-enveloping feast for the senses. Sivakasi on the southern tip of India is where the sub-continent's major fireworks manufacturers are located and it is also a centre of the printing industry - when the two come together, the result is a visual explosion. Searing colors, bizarre typography and hallucinogenic images combine to create a style of packaging that resembles nothing else on earth. It's an art of noisy extremes, a volcanic eruption of creativity- and all this, of course, before you even light the blue touch paper. Printed on boards in concertina form and packed in original fireworks boxes, this brilliantly original book celebrates a unique graphic language where understatement is suicidal, excess equals success and sheer spectacle is everything."-the publisher.
