"The Great Race" by Nathan Kumar Scott, Art by Jagdish Chitara (published by Tara Publishing Ltd., UK, 2011), Part 2


This is not an old book but a great one nevertheless. I bought it only last month, impressed with the exceptional quality of the pictures as well as the impeccable design and layout on every page. I've been aware of Tara Publications ( ) for some time now but I hadn't realised how good their books were in the flesh.
According to the introduction in the book, this is  "an Indonesian trickster tale" retold by Nathan Kumar Scott. The beautiful pictures are by Jugdish Chitara, a Waghari textile artist from Ahmedabad, using traditional painting techniques on cloth. There is an interesting section on the artist's background and work at the end of the book.
