The perforated page features abstract patterns found in the jali screens and other artifacts and furnishings.

The book opens with a perforated page, at left, inspired by the jali screens at Shangri La. The book features historical documents related to the house and its design. Here, a photo of Doris Duke in India during her 1935 honeymoon with James Cromwell is layered with telegrams about designs for their home. Bookmark the permalink.
