Is The Prophet a collection of the best advice and wisdom on how to live to be happy, how to love to be loved, how to work to be fulfilled? Or is it more and yet more?!
It is not without reason that Khalil Gibran is said to be the most widely read author after William Shakespeare and Laozi in the world, and in the USA , after the Bible, the best-selling book.
The illustration layer, consisting of eight signed linocuts by Slawomir Chrystow, creates a different, parallel story.
The prints are printed on Xuan mulberry paper with a shelf life of a thousand years.
In addition, 28 initial linocuts have been embossed on Xuan paper hand-decorated using the Ebru technique.
