  1. Rubaiyat is one of those endless sources of inspiration - I always love the things people come up with for it.

  2. Fantastic ones!!! is very apropiate to used a "golden age accient style" in drawings, to make another version of this classic of literature. it,s like a tribute of Edmund Dulac or Warwick Globle (two of my favourites for ever and ever...); don,t you think so?

    always a pleasure your post.



  3. yes you're right. i agree with you.
    and he`d said "I was very much treading in Dulac's shadow for this book; perhaps too much so. I was very conscious of wanting to emulate him."

    So kind of you, Jorge
