Illustrations & Graphic Design by Anita Varma

Illustrations and book design for read-aloud storybooks and such. These were written for young children by different Indian authors.

As an illustrator my effort is to go beyond supporting the text of a story by simply describing it with a picture. Through my illustrations I try to extend the original idea contained in the text. And by doing so, add another dimension to the tale.
