February 24, 2022

Several years ago, Danton O’Day produced an interesting study of the artists who worked on the menus of the Omar Khayyam Club of London from its foundation in 1892 up to 1929. Details of this book were given in an earlier post https://omarkhayyamrubaiyat.wordpress.com/2017/07/25/artists-of-the-omar-khayyam-club-of-london/. Danton has now sent us information about a new ebook edition of this publication.

Artists of the Omar Khayyam Club of London from 1892-1929:

The eBook Edition

Danton H. O’Day

Read about a cartoonist, a spy, the man who developed camouflage and others who illustrated The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, one of the most popular poems in history. It also is one of the most illustrated collection of verses of all time. At the turn of the 19th to 20th centuries, Edward FitzGerald’s translation of Omar’s four-line verses was a world-wide phenomenon that reached cult status. Many clubs and organizations were formed to study and to celebrate the poetry, its poet and translator. This ebook documents the 28 menu artists of the Omar Khayyam Club of London from 1892-1929, a club that still exists. This is the first time all the artist’s pictures have been presented in ebook format. In addition to presenting all the artwork, the book reveals many discoveries about incorrect artist credits, an unidentified artist and errors in lists and timelines.
