London Jungle Book by Sirish Rao London Jungle Book, Hardback (March 2014)

Hailed as a book that reverses the anthropological gaze, 'The London Jungle Book' is the personal story of Indian tribal artist Bhajju Shyam's first encounter with a western city. Revised & fully updated to mark the 10th anniversary of that momentous journey, Bhajju's rich art and poignant reflections are as relevant today as they ever were.
