The Kama Sutra

The Project

The Kama Sutra Alphabet is a personal project from French born and London based illustrator Malika Favre.

In 2011, Malika was commissioned by Paul Buckley at Penguin Books US to illustrate the new Deluxe Classic Cover of the Kama Sutra by Vatsyayana.

Using the original set of 7 letters she created for the cover as a starting point, Malika then decided to develop the full set of 26 letters as part of an exhibition project.

The Kama Sutra prints are currently on show at Pick Me Up from the 18th to the 28th of April 2013 at Somerset house in London.

Each letter is a very limited edition of 25 screenprints, signed and numbered by the artist.
