The Art of the Dot teaches the reader how to complete and create stunning kolams.

A form of drawing that is practised in southern India, kolams are geometrical line drawings composed of curved loops and straight lines, drawn around or over a grid pattern of dots.

Art-lovers must follow the step-by-step guides as they work their way through beginner, intermediate and advanced designs. Each completed kolam is a gorgeous geometric marvel that can be coloured in and decorated.

With an introduction from anthropologist and kolam specialist, Anna Laine PhD, readers will soon be experts themselves and can get creative with their own designs.
