by Amitava Kumar.

HarperCollins. Pages 183. Rs 699

What does the world look like? I don’t think it looks like photographs. You have to find out for yourself, you have to draw it. David Hockney’s profound quote is a template of sorts for acclaimed author and artist Amitava Kumar. ‘The Yellow Book’, like ‘The Blue Book’, shows us not just how we can put together a journal or a book, but also how we assemble a life and why we must plant memories and continue to believe in spring.
