Painful People

Filter Press’ (a product of Alok Nanda Communications) second book ‘Painful People’ is written and illustrated by Cyrus Daruwala, also the artist behind the award winning ‘I Take This Train Too’.

This limited edition book is 100% hand crafted – the text was handwritten by Daruwala before it was taken to the digital medium, and each illustration was hand-stamped by him on the book. The book is an ingenious piece of work documenting the classic annoying specimens that we often encounter in our daily lives, who challenge our resolve to stay civil, to its greatest extent. In the book, the author speaks directly to these pain inducing breed ‘with the bleak hope of encouraging behavioural change’. From the ‘Seat Hoggers’ to the ‘Moral Policers’ – they are all in there.
