Ishan Khosla De­sign, Delhi

India Today - - COVER STORY -

Ishan Khosla fell in love with book cover de­sign while in­tern­ing for the pub­lish­ing house, Far­rar, Straus & Giroux in New York. A chal­leng­ing and largely un­ex­plored field, book cover de­sign­ing is still find­ing its feet in In­dia. “Some cov­ers are chal­leng­ing from the point of view of trans­lat­ing a com­plex con­cept vis­ually; while others can be chal­leng­ing from the point of view of ex­press­ing some­thing mun­dane in a unique man­ner. Then there are chal­lenges in terms of il­lus­tra­tion or in terms of sourc­ing or cre­at­ing props and ob­jects to be shot for the cover,” ex­plains Khosla. Ishan Khosla De­sign has been fea­tured in In­dia: Con­tem­po­rary De­sign — Graph­ics, Fash­ion and In­te­ri­ors (The Vic­to­ria & Al­bert Mu­seum) on con­tem­po­rary In­dian de­sign

which was part of the V&A show on In­dian de­sign in 2015 as well as the Venice Bi­en­nale. by Jahnavi Chakravarty
