ABOUT THE BOOKS

SAWIYANO: Drawings, Volume 1

Both the residents of the village and visitors ere welcome to draw. While they were welcome to keep the drawings, many were given to Betni Kalk. It took some coaxing to get the women to draw, but they were soon adding to the stack of drawings. Frequent themes include animals that are hunted, homes, fishing, food from gardens and traditional motifs. The book will be a "coffee table book" in 2 sizes, large and medium. The medium size is 8 x 10 inches, about 120 pages, softbound ($60 + Shipping). The large size is 13 x 11 inches, hardbound ($120 + Shipping). Due to be Completed by July 2013.
