"The idea for Do! came from the observation that people in Warli painting are active all the time, always doing something. It’s a beautiful and dynamic art form, ideal for children’s picture books, and I’m delighted that the book has won such a prestigious award, said Gita Wolf, author of Do! and publisher, Tara Books.
Do! features art from the Warli tribal community of painters in Maharashtra, western India. It is a deceptively simple and ingenious introduction to basic verbs like 'pull', 'eat', 'play', 'sleep'...all illustrated by the elegant minimalist pictograms of Warli artists Ramesh Hengadi and Shantaram Dhadpe, and silk screened on recycled packing paper."
