Tara Books is a collective of writers, designers and bookmakers, publishing illustrated books for children and adults. Based in Chennai, India they’re an independent visual arts publisher, looking to push the boundaries of the physical book in an age busy writing its obituary.
Known for our richly visual content, they offer a curated list that includes children’s literature, photography, graphic novels, art and art education. Tara’s ongoing dialogue with the incredibly rich and varied forms of indigenous art in India began two decades ago, and they’ve brought many of these traditions into the space of the book for the first time. They’re also renowned for our silkscreen-printed books, these titles are printed and bound by hand in our book-making workshop and have found their way to readers around the globe.
Tara has also won over 80 international awards, including the Bologna Ragazzi Award for the Best Children’s Publisher in Asia and the London Book Fair International Book Industry Excellence Award.
