About the publisher;
Tara is a publishing collective based in Tamil Nadu for over 20 years.
They’re particularly well-known for screen-printed books made entirely by hand—from the paper to the printing and binding. 25 artisans are employed in their bookmaking workshop.
Integral to their publishing is a pioneering engagement with the rich diversity of Indian folk and tribal art, much of this art is said to have originated from women’s everyday art practices. As feminists, they are interested in exploring both traditional women’s art and contemporary renderings of women’s creativity.
Tara has won awards for many individual titles and prestigious awards including the London Book Fair International Publishing Industry Excellence Award, 2014 and the Bologna Prize for Best Children’s Publisher (Asia Region), 2013.
