The Little Book of Hindu Deities

Picture 1-39 Sanjay Patel, (check out his doodles!) an animator at Pixar, sent me his delightful illustrated book, The Little Book of Hindu Deities. His style is a little Mary Blair, a little UPA, and thoroughly modern. This is my first introduction to the pantheon of Hindu deities, and Patel's descriptions of the cast of characters, which usually include illuminating anecdotes, are wonderful. It's a shame most schools in the United States skip over the Hindu gods when they teach mythology. What a terrific textbook this would be. Link
