Fireflies, by Rabindranath Tagore

Illustrated in Full Color and in Black & White by Alberta Hutchinson

Fireflies is a collection of brief poems by Rabindranath Tagore, the famed Indian poet and recipient of the 1913 Nobel Prize for Literature. In the words of the poet, “Fireflies had their origin in China and Japan where thoughts were very often claimed from me in my handwriting on fans and pieces of silk.”


In these two treasured volumes, all 253 poems of Fireflies are beautifully illustrated--one volume in black and white, and another in full color--by prolific artist, designer and author, Alberta Hutchinson. Hutchinson also designed 253 different and unique decorative borders to frame each illustrated poem to enhance its mood and energy.

Although Hutchinson did not create the black and white edition of Fireflies as a coloring book, it can be used with great creativity in that way. See Hutchinson's colored version of the book for inspiration.

Proceeds from the sale of these books go to the Ninash Foundation.
