Book by Golestan, Shahrokh

Buge
I bought this book primarily because I was looking for a translation of Omar Khayyam's Rubaiyat by Karim Emami. I didn't realize that it only contained 72 quatrains out of the original 1200. The text is accompanied by pictures of natural scenes that pair well with the quatrains, although some photographs lack crispness as a result of enlargement. The book is oversized, so it is probably better suited for a coffeetable rather than your bookshelf. I like the idea of this book, and I am glad I bought it, but it certainly wasn't what I was expecting.

The best book I have ever read and purchased, from one of the finest translators of Iran, Karim Emami, Golestan one of the brightest journalists, combined with one of the best calligraphers, to produce the brilliant works of Ommar Khayyam. It it such a delight o read it and find it in your library.

Very enjoyable volume for those who like the Rubaiyat. It's large and well illustrated with several translations from Persian. Some are literal others more lyrical. I'm glad I purschased this version.
