The Enduring Ark – Joydeb Chitrakar, Gita Wolf



Joydeb Chitrakar, Gita Wolf

This Indian retelling of the great flood story is illustrated in the vivid narrative style of Patua scroll art from West Bengal, India. Distinctive Indian images combine with fable-like text to present a contemporary environmental perspective on the timeless theme of human misdeeds, natural destruction, and eventual redemption. In this artfully designed book, enclosed in a colourful slipcase, the vertical panels of a Patua scroll unfold as a series of horizontal accordion folds, taking the reader through the ebb and flow of a raging ocean towards a rainbow of hope.

Tara Books is an independent publishing house started in 1994 by Gita Wolf. Over the years, she was joined by other creative friends who have helped Tara grow organically and in many directions.

In addition to the office team, 25 artisans presently work at Tara bookmaking workshop. They’re particularly well-known for the screen-printed books made entirely by hand—from the paper to the printing and binding.

An integral part of Tara publishing is a pioneering engagement with the rich diversity of Indian folk and tribal art. Over a period of 20 years, Tara has brought a range of such artists into the book form for the first time.
