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.

Follow Lylou's preparations to open new shop, Nourish, in Athens, Georgia.

Happy Easter!

your passion for Indian design is surpassed by many i know (outside of me). we must travel there together someday. i will show you the 'native' life and you can show me the few of the 'artist.' i love both and the journey through India is always something unexpected. i would love to take that journey with a 'stranger, ' yet familiar from another land....also know as Sweden...teehee.

(thanks for the blug)

oh wow, yes the tree crowned dear is magnificent... i wonder what the symbolism is there. beautiful.

I'm glad you like them too!

Heather, in the book the crowned deer theme is said to be about the relationships between human beings and the natural world. Seems right to me :)

Lylou, let's make wishes!

These prints are wonderful. The book is very colorful and interesting. Indian folk art has its own charm. The peacock and the tree crowned deer amazed me.
