The Legend of the Fish PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Legend of the Fish free pdf With unique silver illustrations silk-screened by hand on handmade paper Hand-crafted in every way, this loving retelling of an ancient India fable that will resonate across cultures features intricate, passionate art that captures with great power the original drama of the tale. Hand-bound book and letter pressed, LEGEND OF THE FISH is a tribute to the fine art of book-making, as it was practised once upon a time. Brahma, the creator, is unhappy with the world he has made from his own mind. It is perfect, yet because it is perfect, it lacks death, and therefore life. At his bidding, Vishnu, the preserver, goes down into the new world to set it right. Taking the form of a fish, he finds the man who can help him start afresh, and re-create a living world. Readers of this archaic myth of flood and resurrection will recognise universal parallels in other cultures, while the intense and intricate art captures the cosmic sweep of the story.
