Gallan: Conversations inspired by Gurmukhi Alphabets By Ameet Gill Cover Image
Not In Store / Available To Order (allow for shipping time to bookstore or direct-to-home)


This is my artistic approach to creating a Punjabi cultural dialogue with 83 pages of photographed and graphically reproduced mixed media illustrations, artworks and digital works, combined with a hand written and a typed collection of "Gallan" (Conversations). These illustrations and conversations about Punjabi culture, poetry, music, art genres and events are inspired by Punjabi Alphabets called "Gurmukhi".

This book is for anyone interested in Punjabi culture, learning basic Punjabi language, vocabulary and grammar. I want this book to offer the audience not only an insight into the culture but ignites curiosity to know and want more.

This book seamlessly targets an audience of varied interests and age groups by including:
-An art lesson
-Complete instructions for an outdoor game of Marbles
-Each artwork, illustrations and graphics are signed or initialized.
-Fully translated folk song and a poem by legendary poet.
-Self portrait of the artist.
