Life Of Pi (illustrated) (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.1295

"Life of Pi" needs little introduction. Since it was first published in 2002 it has entered mainstream consciousness and remains one of the most extraordinary works of fiction in recent years. In October 2005 Canongate launched a competition with "The Times" to find an artist to illustrate Yann Martel's international bestseller. Soon the competition expanded as the "Globe" and "Mail" and "The Age" newspapers also launched a search in Canada and Australia. From thousands of entries, Croatian artist Tomislav Torjanac was chosen as the illustrator for this new edition of "Life of Pi". 'My vision of the illustrated edition of "Life of Pi" is based on paintings from a first person's perspective - Pi's perspective. The interpretation of what Pi sees is intermeshed with what he feels and it is shown through use of colours, perspective, symbols, hand gestures, etc. 'The idea behind this approach is a kind of an extension of Mr. Martel's idea as expressed in this quote: "It seemed natural that Mr. Patel's story should be told mostly in the first person - in his voice and through his eyes. But any inaccuracies or mistakes are mine."' - Tomislav Torjanac.

About The Author
Yann Martel is the author of Life of Pi, published to international acclaim in over forty countries and winner of the 2002 Man Booker Prize, and a number of collections of short stories, including The Facts Behind The Helsinki Roccamatios. Tomislav Torjanac was born in 1972 in Croatia, where he lives and works as a freelance illustrator. His life is not unlike his favourite medium (oil paints) or his style: slow and quiet, but colourful. When he's not painting, he likes reading, listening to music, walking, trying to outstare his neurotic cat Puki or spending non-quality time with his two dogs, Nero and His Brother. Amongst other things, he's done many book covers and illustrated a few children's books, including James Joyce's The Cat and the Devil.

A Book For Life thats Life of Pi

I personally love this Book Specially for its Movie...

Also This Book is a very good Illustrated Edition.. Even got Some nice Colored Artistic Pictures in it.. Its a great buy for me as it would be having a long life too reason is the Hard Binding it Comes With...

Some People May think of The Price (Little High) ..... But I'll Say Just But It .. Its Worth It And Even Better.. Hats Off
