Joydeb Chitrakar, Gita Wolf

This Indian retelling of the great flood story is illustrated in the vivid narrative style of Patua scroll art from West Bengal, India. Distinctive Indian images combine with fable-like text to present a contemporary environmental perspective on the timeless theme of human misdeeds, natural destruction, and eventual redemption. In this artfully designed book, enclosed in a colourful slipcase, the vertical panels of a Patua scroll unfold as a series of horizontal accordion folds, taking the reader through the ebb and flow of a raging ocean towards a rainbow of hope.
