Jīvanati : kavitaikaḷ / Vān̲ampāṭi (Cuntarēcaturai). Cen̲n̲ai : Pūṅkoṭi Patippakam, 1985. From the University of Chicago Library.

ஜீவநதி Jeevanathi by வானம்பாடி Vanampadi (Skylark).

I believe that Jeevanathi means “river of life”, but correct me if I’m wrong! I also believe that Vanampadi is a poetry magazine, so this might be a poetry anthology?

This fluid, scripty, very sloped style became really popular in the late 80s/early 90s (from what I can tell from my image collection). I really like this cover’s composition, very nice!
