When London-based artist Aleesha Nandhra went traveling through the Motherland for the first time, she brought her constant companion, a notebook, along for the ride. From Delhi to Nanded to Amritsar to a smattering of other Punjabi locales, Nandhra copied down what she saw.

These are some of the illustrations from her time in India. People, food, trinkets and traditions all make an appearance. It is a simple collection of observations, but Nandhra’s representations of such quintessentially North Indian items feels like an entire world.
