"Before I used to stitch just to make patterns. But now I think about what I want to say through my stitches." Like many others, Raniben has moved beyond beautiful needlework to narrative art, embroidering her own stories. This book has one such story – about how she and her family left their village in Pakistan, crossed the harsh desert to start life again. Based on an award-winning animated documentary film, this gorgeously visual book looks at how an inherited craft has become personalised art. At the end is a section that introduces children to the rich and diverse art of embroidery in Gujarat.

What a book!
A book that is powerful and yet an effective story of women who have learnt to adapt to earth-shaking events in their lives - having been displaced, time and again, from their homes. A book that is about sharing, cooperation, and learning to live in harmony with each other. A book that is an engaging introduction to art and the artist through story, memoir and biography. A book that makes its statement clearly and simply, both in words and pictures, having text that is beautifully balanced in narrative style embroidery. Young India books
