"The first book to use Ladino proverbs as the basis of fine art. The book combines 45 interpretive etchings with literary and scholarly essays by one of Spain's most prominent novelists and an internationally respected Sephardic and Biblical scholar. The etchings are witty, irreverent, whimsical, and profound, and offer a window into the Sephardic culture and experience. Mr. Shanker's style matches perfectly the proverbs: naively simple and deeply philosophical. Marc Shanker's haunted art conjures the spirits of Spain and Salonica ... and in doing so keeps the old alive, as the proverb has it, for the good of the young ... (and) for the pleasure of all, Peter Cole. TOS has the aura of a small ark about it, Maria Rosa Menocal. Limited Edition: 1000 copies."--PublisherMarc Shanker (Author, Illustrator), Antonio Muņoz Molina (Introduction), T.A. Perry (Introduction, Translator)Donated by Marc Shanker.
