Most Expensive Indian Book

Most Expensive Indian Book is "Firefly - A Fairytale", written by famous fashion designer Ritu Beri. The book is priced at Rs 1 lakh and is published by Ritu Beri herself. Famous publisher Penguin had earlier commissioned Ritu Beri to write the book but abandoned the project after hearing the price for the book she had in mind.

The book deals with topics like architecture, history, women and their beauty. It also talks about Ritu Beri's experiences in Paris which were important in shaping her career. Francois Lesage, ''the guru of embroidery'', has written the foreword to the book. Firefly - A Fairytale will have limited edition. Only 100 copies will be sold in India through Ritu Beri's store in Delhi and the book is also available at the new Louis Vuitton flagship store near Champs Elysee in Paris.
