I know that there are hundreds of sites with free clipart on the net, but that's my problem: I cannot check them all! Does anyone know an online resource for (free) Indian clipart with a diversity of subjects? I mean, from wildlife to Rajasthani folk art designs? But it has to be real from and about India, not too general please!

thanks!

As you say, lots of pages.
Check http://dgl.microsoft.com/ and type "India" in the search box.
Or there are a few links on the botom of THIS PAGE.

Thanks! It's not yet really what I am looking for, but it's a good start. If I'll find more interesting pages I will let you know also.

There is just a serious shortage of good India clip art out there, I search a long time ago and couldn't find much.

Is there specific images that you are searching for, if so, can you post what kind and I will check my enormous clip art collection. I have a stockpile of about a million clip art images that I have collected over the years. No joke, I do have about a million images if not more, about fifty cd roms full of various images.

Wow, Mike you should publish them on CD-ROM. I will be the first buyer for sure!
I am currenntly writing a travel guide on Rajasthan on a very low budget. I use my own extensive collection of photographs, but to print too many photographs will be too expensive. So I would like to add drawings/illustrations in black and white of several topics. Of course, I will need permission to use them.
At the moment I am looking for typical Rajasthani designs, like decorations on the floor and surrounding doors, and some drawings on flora and fauna and birds. It is really difficult to find these! In fact, anything on Rajasthan will be great.

But I am also curious, like Archits, what is your plan with them?

Hi Mirjam,

will you be offering the guide as an ebook as well? And when do you reckon that it will be finished? Will be heading to Raj. End of this year beginning of next year.

Cheers!

Hello Watson, When you start travelling to Rajasthan, my book has to be ready... that's the deal with the publisher at least! It will not really be an eBook, but probably I'll combine it with a very extenive website on Rajasthan. I am working on that idea. That way, I can have much more interaction with other travellers, which I like a lot. Also, I may make an cd-rom...
