Saved by Art


Drawing from the City is a story about a girl from an Indian village and
her journey from poverty into the rich inner world of art. A story more
incredible because its author Teju Behan was saved by the drawings
she made.

Drawing from the city was silkscreen printed by hand and bound tog-
ether in a numbered edition of 3000 books by the wonderful publisher
Tara Books.

'Features the stunning illustrations of self-taught Indian folk artist Teju
Behan in a tender and aspirational story about a woman's empower-
ment in patriarchal society'
