Beasts of India takes a lens to the beast as it is imagined and rendered in folk and tribal art traditions across India. The fine art of the original drawings has been recreated through silk-screening each image by hand. Featuring over 30 original pieces, this astonishing bestiary is a book and art collector’s dream. An index of artists’ names and succinct descriptions of the art conventions make it a compact and lively introduction to the unheeded genres of Indian art.

From the Back Cover:

Here are India’s best known beasts―the tiger, the elephant, the cow, the deer, the snake... rendered by a range of tribal and folk artists. Each of them conceives of the animal in distinctive ways, as original in the imagining as in the rendering.

Beasts of India is a rare introduction to Indian folk and tribal art traditions. Every page is an original silk-screen print of an image, making this handmade book an art and book lover’s dream.
