THE NIGHT LIFE OF TREES by Bhajju Shyam, Durga Bai, Ramsingh Urveti
The Night Life of Trees is an exquisite silkscreen-printed book of art and folklore on trees. A lived sense of the environment is brought alive in these pages, to create a veritable cosmos of the Gond forest.
A collection of work by three of the finest living artists of the Gond tribeâ€”traditionally a community of forest dwellers from central Indiaâ€”this quintessential Tara title has seen several editions and been translated into many different languages.
A glowingly mysterious and charming volumeâ€¦ gives an alluring glimpse into an integrative worldview thatâ€™s in poignant contrast to the fragmented postmodern world. â€” Starred Review, Publishers Weekly
BolognaRagazzi Award, New Horizons, 2008
A startlingly generous and colourful collection of images capable of making the most jaded metropolitan refocus and smile â€¦. â€” The Independent
