The posters will include concept sketches and information about the deities on the back, which is sure to be a big draw to illustration fans, parents and those interested in a modern take on Hinduism.

The Big Poster Book of Hindu Deities Press Reviews

Patel's illustration style is quite original and forceful. A strong sense of design, the colors and nuances of the book are very delicate, and Chronicle Books has done a wonderful job of capturing these in the printing and layout. -Michael Sporn Animation .. .a stunning large-format portfolio of 12 removable full-color posters, each bringing a revered ancient deity into the modern Technicolor world in Sanjay's signature anime-inspired vibrant graphic style. Equal parts playful, iconic, and irreverently subversive, the prints are less about reinforcing religious ideology - okay, they're actually not about that at all - than they are about exploring cultural storytelling and tradition from a fresh, unusual angel meant to delight and inspire. - Brain Picking
