This Indian retelling of the great flood story is illustrated in the vivid narrative style of Patua scroll art from West Bengal, India. Distinctive Indian images combine with fable-like text to present a contemporary environmental perspective on the timeless theme of human misdeeds, natural destruction, and eventual redemption. In this artfully designed book, enclosed in a colourful slipcase, the vertical panels of a Patua scroll unfold as a series of horizontal accordion folds, taking the reader through the ebb and flow of a raging ocean towards a rainbow of hope.
