Tara Books' handmade wonders

No matter how international the world is getting, my neighborhood, and even the internet communities i'm part of, are mostly focused on Western European and North American reality. That's why it's really refreshing to see books outside this dominating world view. One inspiring example is Tara Books from Chennai, India.

First time I got Night Life of Trees book in my hands, I simply couldn't believe it's actually handmade. Even if I did understand that you can't get that intense colors and look with any printing machine.

That's why I want you to see this video from Tara Books:

p.s. And I would love to see the video of how Fingerprints book is done.
