Austin Torney has two additional productions relating to the Rubaiyat

April 15, 2015

ATorney vedder 0415Austin Torney has sent us links to his two latest productions that relate to the Rubaiyat.

The first of these is https://austintorney.wordpress.com/2015/04/04/the-theory-of-everything-rubaiyat-book-pages/ This is a production using mainly Austin’s own quatrains inspired by Khayyam and FitzGerald, with many illustrations, and it is available in a variety of formats. As Austin puts it in his introduction ‘herein, we’ll meander on through life’s curious magic-shadow show, with my new quatrains, along with Omar transmogrifications.’

The second link, https://austintorney.wordpress.com/2015/04/08/the-great-omar-pages/, is to Austin’s digital version of a famous edition of FitzGerald’s Rubaiyat, namely the Great Omar, the first copy of which went down in the Titanic. There is a poetic introduction to the volume, and both the jewelled cover, and Vedder’s text and illustrations that formed the interior, are shown. Vedder’s grayscale presentation has been digitally enhanced with some colour, which produces an interesting effect, though purists may not approve. Have a look for yourself and see what you think.
