Love Poems at the Seven Gates of the World

Today, we are back to ʿAbd al-Wahhāb al-Bayātī, and we will stay with this collection for a while. Although the UCLA library removed the cover of this collection when processing it for shelving, the book itself is full of terrific images like this one, combining calligraphy with figural representations.

The artist, who both designed the missing cover and drew the inside illustrations, is Hāshim Samarjī.

This edition is from the Dār al-Ṭūnisiyyah li-l-Nashr, 1972.
