Originally published in 1999 by I.B. Tauris & Co Ltd in association with The Sikh Foundation. ‘Warrior Saints: Three Centuries of the Sikh Military Tradition’ was released as a single print run of 10,000 to coincide with the tricentury celebrations of the formation of the Khalsa.
Expanded and redesigned, the third title of the specialist publisher Kashi House; in which Juga Singh designed the editions of the book, cartography of two double page maps and provided half of the object illustrations [48/88; 30 objects photographed and 18 a combination of reprographic imaging and film digitization].
The book was launched on 25 April, 2013 at the National Army Museum, London; followed with BBC radio presenter Nihal Arthanayake described the book '… if you love history, and military history, and you just want to have an amazing book in your hands, I strongly advise you to buy this book'. The book's first print run sold out within 2013.
The second publication to feature the ‘Toor Collection’, with a third of all objects [28/88] presented in the book. A reprint of the long-awaited classic work, promoted to become the standard text on the subject matter; supported by illustrations, maps and the insertion of recognisable public, commercial and private collections to provide an account of the early Sikh Military History.
The authors wrote within the acknowledgements: “Design maestro Juga Singh,… delivered a masterpiece of book design that makes the material accessible and a delight in celebrating our collective story”.
