About the design: Inspiration

Design inspired from a bowl: Kashan City, Iran(13th - 14th Century) - Stonepaste, painted in black under turquoise glaze

Fish swirl in a sea of vivid, translucent turquoise glaze, creating the illusion of water, an effect that would have been intensified when the vessel was filled with liquid. Schools of fish can be found in many metal and ceramic bowls from this period.

The meaning of this motif is mysterious, but it may evoke the notion of distant seas whose water will bring fortune and wealth to the person who drinks from such vessels.

Spine Design

Brush strokes, screen printed by silk screen on each page


The pages are made from recycled jute fibre and have not been treated with any colour or dye; they get the off-white shade naturally while the jute rags are being beaten into pulp to make the paper.
