I like cars. I wonder what it’s like to move at such a high speed and to be in control of where you’re going. There are always two women in my cars. One drives and the other looks out of the window.

I want to be both of those women.

On my wishlist, is Tara Books ‘ newest publication: Drawing from the City. This is a personal story of  Teju behen, who has chosen to relate her story in ink drawings in the Patua style.

Tara Books description about the book, captivates me. Hand-drawn , hand made objects are more personal and more valuable to me than any other artefact. They are priceless.

In her review of this book, Maria Popova (via BrainPickings) calls this an analog labour of love in your analog human hands. I couldn’t agree more!
