Designer Ram Rahman on the Tulika Books logo:
"Tulika is the word for brush or quill. I took the idea of a calligraphy nib and 
the angular mark it makes with ink.This was stylized in a graphic form and 
then played on with positive and negative space to create a logo which 
I hoped would be a statement of a modern vision rooted in a cultural tradition."
