A great gem in Chennai if you are into illustration, printmaking or book design. The building itself is also worth the visit.

I have been wanted to visit the Book Building since I met handmade picture books from Tara Books. The books are an abusolute gem! Those books remind me of pure joy of reading.
The Book Building itself is very beautiful culture space. Not only you can buy all books from Tara, but also some lithos and cards which will be perfect gifts for your friends and yourselves.
If you visit Chennai, I strongly recommend to visit there. I also liked the local neighborhood.

This gem tucked away on leafy lanes in Chennai is something to behold. I've visited Chennai twice, and both times I've had to return to Tara over the course of a day because I couldn't stop thinking about a book or a work of art that I wished I'd purchased. Tara Books is special. I loaded up on stationery, prints, books, and more, but what mattered the most was the moments I got to spend in their quiet, creative space appreciating the art and story they bring to life. It's a unique building with a very important purpose. I'm so grateful for the good works they are putting into the world!

I have been going through books by Tara books for sometime and had made a mental note to visit them when I am in Chennai next. It is a bit of a struggle to find them, but it is worth the effort to make that effort. You would love their walls, their picture books that use Indian tribal arts as a medium to tell stories and a lovely team.

I have never come across something quite unique as TaraBooks.

Set in a beautiful modern building in the south of Chennai, it is filled full of wonderful art painted directly onto the walls by artists from all over India. Lots to explore!

With regards to the books, each and every little detail is carefully considered to produce some truly visually stunning books! some of which are entirely handmade. You can easily spend a whole afternoon in their quiet courtyard reading through their books.

When I read the picturebook of TARABOOKS for the first time before, I was so impressed. Some picturebooks of TARA are made from all handmade. The books that are made from silkscreen and handmade paper are so beautiful. And when I visited to this bookbuilding, I thought that that's so fabulous building. The big picture of tree and animals was painted on wall by Indian traditional artist, it's fantastic and so comfortable space. And the wall that are made from various traditional patterns is beautiful too.

It is bookshop and gallery of Tara Books, Indian publisher for picture books. I really like their books like ' Night life of Trees', hand made, silk screened book, working with Indian folk artist. Beautiful and sensitive books. The bookshop was very nice space with lots of sun light and quiet. I was there for long time reading their books. People at the shop was very helpful. It was very nice afternoon being there.

Book Building is dedicated solely to the book and arts. The building itself is architecturally fascinating, filled with art work. It also features a bookstore, an art gallery and a quiet courtyard to savour the books. The specially commissioned wall murals and the ongoing exhibitions are just another reason to enjoy this lovely space.

If you have time on your hands, visit their Bookcraft workshop set 20 mts away and witness the various processes in screen printing and binding of these hand crafted books.
