Spiral bound, full-color traditional Indian mehndi design books.
Hastkala by Bhavini Gheravara has over 120 intricate, super-duper traditional Indian mehandi designs, with a strong emphasis on peacocks. These designs are best for advanced artists. Most hand designs go to almost the elbows.
Shagun by Bhavini Gheravara has over 75 bridal designs that feature a lot of figures, bride-groom portraits, and other super traditional elements like the kalash, dhol / instruments, and of course peacocks (but not as many peacocks as Hastkala!). The designs typically go a bit above mid-forearm, but there is some variety. Designs are good for intermediate artists looking to expand their repertoire of traditional Indian elements.
This is less than 30c per design, for books that are extremely rare and hard to find... (you won't find these babies on Amazon!)
FREE media mail shipping is included within the US.
If you are international, the shipping price may be prohibitive, but we are happy to send you an invoice for the actual shipping cost if you really want these. (they ARE really hard to find, after all...)

This design is a GREATLY simplified version of the type of designs you will find in Hastkala. The cover provides an accurate impression of the intricacy of the designs inside.
