facsimile editions

Wed Jan 8 21:40:41 UTC 2003

Hi Leslie and Indology members,

I have (and have had for some time) something quite different and wonder
whether you or anyone on the list has any suggestions: a set of excellent
bl/wh photographs of Tantric mudras used in Kerala with explanations. About
20 I believe. Where to publish it Indological publications being so
verbally oriented?

Happy New year,
