The book is about the mighty Peshwa Bajirao. It speaks about story of the 18th century and how despite the dominant Mughal rule, the Maratha Confederacy has established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the Indian Subcontinent. The illustrations had to showcase each character in their true form to compliment the writings of the Author.
Keeping the illustration character centric, the brush strokes had to be bold speaking the strength of individual. The original photographs of the characters were referred to give details and backgrounds had to talk the story of the character and their origins hence the colours played a very important role in creating the scenes.
