Crabs, octopi, serpents, lobsters and seahorses - all swim happily and brightly in this beautiful hand-made book from the lovely folk from Tara Books. Waterlife is full of illustrations by Rambharos Jha, an Indian artist who practices Mithila art, a tradition from Bihar in the East. Rambharos grew up beside the water of the Ganges and has developed a fascination for the creatures that reside above and below the surface - in Waterlife he brings memories and myths together with his playful, wistful text and gorgeous images.
This book has been silk-screen printed by hand on hand-made paper stock in Chennai, India. It looks and feels very special and smells even better!
