  • Issued in a limited edition of 25, numbered and signed by the book artist
  • "The book is divided into seven segments, each separated by a divider of hand-marbled Japanese paper. The first contains the title page and introduction and the last an artist's statement, bibliography and colophon. The remaining five are dedicated to the seventy-five quatrains of FitzGerald's first editions. Each contains a vellum window, reminiscent of a Persian archway that opens to reveal my version of a miniature painting"-- Artist's statement
  • "Text pages: Mohawk Via vellum. Printed on an Epson 2000P using archival pigmented inks. Illustration portfolios: Moab Entrada with origjnal art, scanned and printed on an Epson 2000P. Overprinted with a linocut to produce opacity and pattern. Additional applications of paint, colored pencil and graphite used to heighten color and detail. Finished with gold and silver leaf. Lasercuts: Glama natural clear vellum. Lasercut archways with repeat patterns printed on an etching press using polymer plates. Marbled dividers: hand-marbled on Kozuke Japanese paper.
