Songs of Our Ancestors Vol. 3: Tree of Love

In the next volume of Patrick (Yellow Jar) Atangan's Asian folktale collection, Tree of Love celebrates India's tradition of elevating romance to a work of art. Atangan adapts Rajput polyptych paintings of northern India and transforms them into a unique and poetic comic experience. Tree of Love follows a prince's courtship of a flower peddler. The young prince is surprised by the difficulty in proving the worthiness of what everyone sees as a common woman. But she has a secret, a special gift bound in the beauty and power of nature.
Each page faithfully ornaments Tree of Love's painfully universal story about the intricacies of love.
"A beautiful book, one that will do quite well on the self of any lover of art. Each of Atangan's books has been a visual joy, and Tree of Love is no exception to that rule."
