About Us

Tulika’s imaginatively created books for children pioneered a significant wave in Indian publishing in 1996. An independent publishing house, we cover a range of genres but focus on multilingual picture books for children – in English, Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, Kannada, Telugu, Marathi, Gujarati and Bengali – to make more books accessible to more children. They offer a range of experiences that are inclusive and representative: of different childhoods, social milieus, cultures and contexts. The visual language too is diverse, with the traditional alongside the contemporary.

Our logo, the crow, is a bright, busy, intelligent bird, an unmissable part of the sights and sounds of India! And ‘tulika’ is the old-fashioned feather quill, which dips into the old and the new to give children a sense of their world.
