Illustrated by Swedish sculptor, Annette Senneby, with a continuous etched line that extends across the box housing the book, the covers, endpapers, and each page of text. The line crosses the pages in various directions, going diagonally up, and down. The etched line can be seen through the pages, forming a ghostly pattern in a way that mirrors Rumi’s writings. Text translated by Zahra Partovi from the work of Jalaluddin Mohammad Rumi.
