Order Nr. 135444

One of 50 numbered copies signed by the author and artist. Dedicated to Mohammad Ali on the colophon. Interpreted by Zahra Partovi, whom also provided the calligraphy. Printed by Allethaire Press & Wild Carrot Letterpress. Composed by The Shagbark Press. Etchings by Annette Senneby. With a line-shaped etching extending over 28 pages. Printed on Velin Rives Johannot. The young Iranian artist Zahra Partovi bound the book in silk with decorated paste-paper endpapers and pastedowns, as well as translated the sentences of the Persian poet Rumi (1207-1273) into modern Persian and called this text. She also did the English translation. The etching by Annette Senneby (born 1951, Swedish sculptor) and M'Lis Bartlett of The Printmaking Workshop runs like a "gray thread" through the entire book. The book is housed in a custom clamshell box crafted by David Bourbeau of the Thistle Bindery with steel plates from Hector Perez embedded in the covers. A pristine copy.
