A Conversation with Gita Wolf in Melbourne

The Australian Book Designers Association invite you to a conversation with Gita Wolf. Gita established the independent publishing house Tara Books in Chennai, India in 1994. Tara Books is run as a collective and advocates that “design is not decoration or embellishment, but basic to how a book creates meaning.” In addition to publishing award winning books that encourage collaboration between writers, designers and artisans, Tara Books created a trust to support education and research as well as a bookmaking workshop that supports local artisans.
The event will include Gita showing two short films and a collection of books.
