santa comes for easter too
I hope your Easter is nice, how ever you celebrate it!
This lovely parcel arrived all the way from India and Tara Publishing, just in time for Easter. Like Christmas. A beautiful hand made, fine detailed, colourful, screenprinted book with lovely creatures of Indian tribal art. Orissa, Tamil Nadu, Madhya Pradesh; taste the words and imagine the smell of paper and how the print feels to fingertips. I'm so thankful, Nina!
The prints will find frames and a place to hang; can't say which one I like the most, maybe the tree crowned deer.
See here what else they publish, art books, fiction, children's books and more.
