Kolkata’s Daftaripara

Those interested in paper, books, and the material cultures that grow up around them might take the time to visit http://www.daftaripara.org/ a new project of the School of Media, Communication and Culture at Jadavpur University. Students engaged in this project spent days and month patiently recording the daily life and work of the ‘binderies’ in and around Kolkata’s book-trade district. The result is a fascinating compendium of text and images.
