Tree of Love: Songs of Our Ancestors: Volume III: Songs of Our Ancestors, Volume III
In the next volume of Patrick Atangan's Asian folktale collection, Tree of Love celebrates India's tradition of elevating romance to a work of art. Atangan adapts Rajput polyptych paintings of northern India and transforms them into a unique and poetic comic experience. Tree of Love follows a prince's courtship of a flower peddler. The young prince is surprised by the difficulty in proving the worthiness of what everyone sees as a common woman. But she has a secret, a special gift bound in the beauty and power of nature. Each page faithfully ornaments Tree of Love's painfully universal story about the intricacies of love.
