A true artistic talent, the American artist Victor Roland Anderson illustrated verses of Edward FitzGerald's Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. His poetic interpretations were originally done on parchment around 1936. Now, for the first time, they are presented in this softcover book by Moira Anderson Allen, the granddaughter of Victor, and Danton O'Day, a researcher of Rubaiyat artists. After a short introduction to the artist and how the book came to be, Victor Anderson's beautifully designed pages are presented in their full glory. This is a visually appealing book that is a pleasure to read. It is perfect as a gift for anyone who loves poetry especially those who love the Rubaiyat, one of the worlds most famous collections of verse.
