Cover Design:
The cover, designed by artist Vishwa Shroff, responds to
the layout of the Lilavati
Lalbhai Library on the
campus of the CEPT
University in Ahmedabad.
The building, designed by
RMA Architects, creates a
series of layered skins and
spaces — a kind of
archaeology of books,
knowledge, reading, and the
sense of an on-campus
atmosphere.
