I feel that such beautiful writing should be accompanied by art that is equally as beautiful. And that Is what we get here. Omar Khayyam is joined by the extremely talented illustrator Joseph Isom. So far, these are the only illustrations I know of that he did. I have no background information on him.
Does David Apatoff have any information on him? David is the curator of the Illustration Art blog here.
Such a strong sense of composition and design. Everything is staged so clearly that even at a small size, you know exactly what is happening in the painting.
This is one of my favorites. Oh, who am I kidding? I can't choose a favorite.
Another aspect of his talent that floors me is how each piece has a different color scheme, each suggesting a different mood and atmosphere.
My god, these are beautiful!! I must bow to his talents!! I can only dream to have his talent.
Until Next Time
