If you think books with pictures only for children, I don’t think so. Because in this age I still in love with books with colorful pictures. After lost in the library last week, I’m still talking about old books and planning to discover more fun in it. I think I can’t distrack my attention on books right now. It was fun finding some unique pictures and symbol.
I found this picture in one of Arabian literature. Unfortunately, I didn’t know what this picture wants to tell about. I also found another picture besides this unidentified picture. It was the face of the twins brothers. If only I can read and understand Arabic, so I can tell the meaning. For now, I can only tell you my opinion: what an ugly face that the man has. He he…
I was opened another book when I got this scary picture. This book was written in France so I couldn’t get the point of the story too. The only thing I can mention is that this picture tells me something related to cultural punishment. As you can see, there was a man (my friend said it was a woman) who punished by slashed his tongue and treat like a dead man. Eww…
This was my favorite most. This Arabian story “The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyan” has many colorful picture. I love the way the illustrator made the pictures. This picture can tells me something about what the writer wants to say. And I think I got his (I imagine he was a handsome man) autograph. Can you read this Arabic handwriting? This ilustrations made by Hamzah Abd-Ullah Kar 🙂
I also found some books (I guess) related to ancient Rhome. I identified them from its long dresses made from white fabric.
In this book I also found some unique symbols I never meet before. I admiring them and took the picture and make them into this writing. If only I can understand the meaning of this symbol, may be I can make more writing about it. For now I can only imagine that this picture with FANTA writing seems like the old vesion of Fanta softdrink in this modern society. Hihi..
Do you know what this symbol means?
