Forrest, Bob

John Buckland Wright (1897-1954). Including an account of the Rubaiyat of Anthony Reid. Bob Forrest. Manchester : [Bob Forrest], 2017. 28 pages, 8 pages of plates : illustrations (some colour) ; 30 cm.
Rubaiyat Artists No. 5.

A closer look at Buckland Wright’s well–known heterosexually erotic illustrations of The Rubaiyat, and at Reid’s homosexually erotic ‘translation’ of The Rubaiyat. Two very different, but curiously inter–linked, approaches to Omar. Includes an Addendum devoted to JBW’s extra–illustrated copy of the Golden Cockerel Rubaiyat.
