About the book:

This book documents the growth of printed images of punishments in hell from 19th-and 20th-century India. It traces the sources of iconography and formal visual structures that found new expression in late 19th-century chromolithographs showing deeds and their punishments. These prints, often titled Karni Bharni (reap as you sow), remain part of a living tradition, being still commercially produced by several presses.
