The extensive body of work by 13th-century mystic poet Jelaluddin Rumi continues to fascinate readers with a taste for the spiritual, and his writings, which speak passionately of truth, enlightenment, and love for God, appeal to those of all religions. Translations of Rumi's writings by the contemporary poet Coleman Barks have sold more than 500,000 copies since 1981. Now acclaimed illustrator Michael Green -- who collaborated with Barks on The Illuminated Rumi (Broadway Books) -- has produced a new and fabulous mystic fusion of sacred poetry and art. This all-new volume features rare poems of Rumi, some of which have never before been translated. There are many collections of Rumi's poetry, but few are illustrated-and none as gorgeously as this full-color book. It is well positioned to capture the favor of spiritual seekers of all ages, including today's spiritually adventurous young adults.

Included with the book is a CDROM by "The Illumination Band" who have put some of the Rumi poemas to music.

About the Author:

Michael Green has had a 30-year career as an artist and illustrator. His books include Unicorns, Zen and The Art of the Macintosh, and The I Ching Records.

Magnificent calligraphy and illustration, blended with Rumi's work. Only a little bit of Rumi's work. A beautiful coffee table book. ( )
