‘Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam: Sullivan Colorized’

Lulu A4 (8.3×11.7) coil-bound

Lulu 8×10 Hardcover      Amazon 7×10

Apple iBook

I’ve colorized Edmund J. Sullivan’s 75 b/w line art drawings for his artistic rendition of Edward FitzGerald’s ‘Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam’ first edition.

How does one make anything out of some black lines and a lot of white space? First, crop out any excess, then delete all the white and put a background color or a slight scene behind the black, one that won’t overpower the drawing; then select only the black and put a gradient through it until it looks fine, perhaps shifting the hues somewhat; then bevel it to apparently raise it up a bit into the 3rd dimension; and finally,  to texturize, add a slight oil paint effect.

‘The Ultimate Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam’ 14×11 Hardcover Edition

PrestoPhoto

Here is my final and Ultimate Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, it having absorbed the best of my other Omar Rubaiyats. This is truly my final effort. It is an all encompassing Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam and contains the best from all my prior Omar rubaiyats, such as the Annotated, the Resplendent, the Ancient Times, the Ornamented-Embellished, and the Bodleian Retransmogrification.

— 115 FitzGerald quatrains (5 are from his notes).
— Bodleian and Calcutta manuscript source quatrains.
— Annotated.

This 14×11 PrestoPhoto print version is $420/400 pages. They say that if one is not careful the binding might not hold up, but this is the only large format very high resolution version (300 dpi) with the art on one full page. I haven’t bought it yet to check it out, so beware.

This all too expensive book might as well be down on the Titanic with ‘The Great Omar’.
