Book design for the multi-generational memoir.

An autobiography of Tara Bhadbhade, the memoir Light & Shade in Life's Glade spans three centuries, peeping into the changing lives and milieus of the women of a family across generations.

The author spent many years in the forests of western India and writes movingly about those days. We used watercolour illustrations to depict this milieu, and to also allude to the title.

The pastoral theme runs through the book with illustrations of flora and fauna. Uncoated, dazzling white paper gives the book an organic feel.
