Hensparrow Turns Purple PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Hensparrow Turns Purple free pdf A Sweet Indian Tale And Lovely Wall Hanging All In One- Winner of the Biennale of Illustrations, Bratislava 1999, this handmade, accordion-style cloth-covered volume turns an old Indian folk tale into both a cheerful children's story and a gorgeous and unique wall hanging. Designed for use as either a scroll or a wall-hanging, Hensparrow Turns Purple tells the story of HenSparrow, who falls into a vat of dye and turns quite purple. Her shocking fate sets of a chain reaction of mourning throughout the land, but how does HenSparrow feel about her new colour? Printed on beautiful hand-made brown paper, with words silk-screened in stunning colours, the hand-pasted artwork recalls the jewel-like quality of Indian miniature painting.
