Based in Chennai, India, Tara is a collective of writers, designers and bookmakers with an inclusive and collaborative approach to publishing illustrated books. Tara Books are carefully screen-printed by hand and use unconventional binding techniques push “the boundaries of the book form in an age that is busy writing its obituary”.
In this presentation, two of Tara’s designers will showcase a range of their award-winning books, discuss the role of design in their publishing process, and explain the ways Tara collaborates with indigenous artists as well as print and production artisans.
