Since then, Rekha Prakashan has published some of the most stimulating and carefully researched books on completely unexplored areas of Indian art history, especially with a focus on Punjab and the Western Himalayas. K.C.Aryan was a pioneer in documenting the unknown aspects of the art and culture of Punjab.

His daughter Dr. Subhasini Aryan `s books on diverse aspects of Western Himalayan – mainly present Himachal Pradesh -- arts, crafts, and architecture complement K.C.Aryan`s works on Punjab.
