'Passionate Persian' by Himmapaan 'Passionate Persian' by Himmapaan
' Pulling Power of a Passionate Persian'

Two of my Rubáiyát illustrations made a small appearance in this article by Ken Russell in The Times on Friday 11th December. It's an overview of the Rubáiyát exhibition at the British Library.

As I mentioned, it's a write-up of the exhibition as a whole, and doesn't discuss my work in any length. Although the opening paragraph does contain a description of my illustration for quatrain 32.

I did giggle a little at that. I didn't quite intend an 'all-seeing-eye' there, nor is it a moon so much as part of the ornamentation of the arch into which the 'door' of the quatrain is set. The ' plate' which Mr Russell describes, indeed, is part of that same door itself. But it doesn't matter in the least. In fact, amused though I may be, I'm glad that Mr Russell has allowed his imagination to run wild with it. :D

Incidentally, I'm also delighted by the fact that Bright Star, a film about Keats, is being advertised on the same page. :giggle:
