Illustrating Indian Folktales

India has a rich culture of folktales and mythological legends. While epics like Ramayana and the Mahabharata have been extensively explored in the visual medium, oral tales that are passed on from generation to generation remain largely untapped. A K Ramanujan’s retellings of these folktales were explored visually in the form of a book and posters to popularise them among children.
