The Night Life of Trees

Odd and bright, the beautiful illustrations in this incredible handmade book on lush black handmade paper appeal to me as an artist and a bookmaker. Thank you, V!

‘Hand screened onto black paper, the colorful, intricately detailed illustrations are almost psychedelic, in some ways reminiscent of Australian Aboriginal drawings. But the forms are recognizably Indian, and despite stylistic differences among the three artists, the pictures reveal a strong and unique Gond artistic tradition where animals, insects and humans merge with and emerge from the trees.’
