Blue Book is a series of images made during Dayanita Singh’s wanderings in the industrial landscapes of India. Presented by Dreamvilla Productions, India (an alias and nom de plume designed to mask Singh’s authorship), the book will be displayed in galleries and museums as a work of art.

Dayanita Singh is an obsessive book-maker, constantly seeking different ways of disseminating her works. Blue Book is made of 23 postcards and everybody who really understands Blue Book will need two copies; one to collect as a piece of art, and one copy to fulfill its second purpose: to communicate via these beautiful postcards.
