Creative Writing and Bookmaking

The Bookmaking Studio creates three kinds of books:

  • Books by children, made in classes or special projects, used thereafter in class or the library;
  • Books written and illustrated by NIRMAN team members and collaborators, intended for commercial publication;
  • Books illustrated or created by artisans, written or designed by NIRMAN team members, also intended for commercial publication. The aim is to be a driving force behind a renaissance in children’s book writing and production in India.

In 2009, we received a grant from Sir Ratan Tata Trust to produce books for children set in Varanasi, which were later published by Eklavya and Tulika.
