1 Review

Five men are out walking on a moonless night, when suddenly they bump into something. Each of them sees something different, yet each is convinced that he is right. How is that possible? And what could this thing be? This modern retelling of an old Sufi tale is a story/fable of wisdom of all ages.

Calligraphed and printed in the style of traditional woodcuts, this book is every collector's dream.

"This small, square book is a handcrafted treasure . . . The pictures and the short calligraphic text, written on handmade paper, and the small bag in which the book is sold make it a special treat for children and book collectors alike."-"White Ravens Catalogue of the World's Best Books"

Rathna Ramanathan is one of India's most sought-after graphic designers.
