Synopsis: Art and design take center stage in this carefully crafted, elegant, artisanal book. This stunning autobiographical art book recounts self-taught artist Tejubehan’s journey from an impoverished childhood in rural India, through her family’s efforts to improve their lot in a tent city in Mumbai, and into her adulthood, when she lived as a singer and artist with her husband. The direct, unadorned text has an immediacy that reveals its roots as an orally narrated life story As a physical artifact, it draws attention to its creation with stiff pages and fragrant, tactile inks A unique offering that presents readers with arresting artwork and a compelling life story.” Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

"Self-taught artist Tejubehan weaves a partly autobiographical, partly escapist, whimsically illustrated tale of a woman trapped between unimaginable poverty and a wildly imaginative inner world in a patriarchal society." - Maria Popova for the New York Public Library bookstore

"...more exquisite and born out of a more moving personal story than just about any book I’ve come across." Brainpickings.org

"Perfect for anyone interested in printmaking, and would make an extra-special gift for the budding feminist in your family." Nashville Scene

A large-format, silk-screened, hand-printed masterpiece. A Los Angeles Times Holiday Gift Pick.

About the Author: Teju Behan is a singer and self-taught urban folk artist from Ahmedabad in western India. She comes from a community of wandering musicians who in times past sang for a living. A chance encounter with a contemporary Indian artist led her to art. Along with her husband and creative partner, Ganesh Jogi Teju Behan developed a unique style of drawing that has won international acclaim. Drawing from the City is her first book.
