Today July 10 2016 is 93rd birth anniversary of G A Kulkarni (जी. ए. कुलकर्णी)
On the subject of fine bookmaking there have always been two different schools of thought. There are those who would decorate a book with clear, beautiful type, print it on good paper and allow, at most, a printer’s flower to decorate the page. And there are the others to whom an illustrated book is an enriched one. ..” (‘500 Years of Art & Illustration’ , 1942)
The late G. A. Kulkarni clearly belonged to the second group, "to whom an illustrated book is an enriched one".
Most fans of GA don’t often talk about this aspect. But GA himself has written about it.
