Some new ways of looking at the image of Omar Khayyam

February 14, 2023

This post is rather lighter in content than some of our normal posts, and should not be taken too seriously. We hope the images sent to us by Roger Paas may serve to raise a smile, or a wry comment, in the middle of the winter months. Our thanks to Roger. We publish these images with apologies to the original sources of the well known images of Omar Khayyam, which are, of course, themselves idealised views of the great astronomer, mathematician, philosopher, and perhaps poet. Roger sent us the following brief comment.

Someone sent me some AI generated images of Omar Khayyam this morning, and I thought you might enjoy them.  First is the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam as a Leonardo etching… and second is a Saul Bass style poster for Omar Khayyam.

The third set of images we have left unlabelled as a challenge to our readers.

A Leonardo etching?

A Saul Bass style poster ?

    Are any of those Saul Bass style posters stencil cut?
