I could not imagine a more lovely imagery for this poetry. I give his book to people I adore.
Worth every penny. A keepsake of love

These books are beautifully illustrated works of art...as far as I'm concerned, this is a must for lovers of Rumi!

It is a book that engenders inspiration and contemplation. The above questions don't really fit well as it is a book of poetry and some prose.
I love the book.

arguably the world's greatest poet in sensitive accurate and beautiful translation and interpretation

Continuing in the tradition of the book he co-authored with Coleman Barks, The Illuminated Rumi, Michael Green has created a volume even more breath-taking than the first. The poetry of Rumi has touched North Americans because its language and references feel modern, relevant, humorous and inspiring. The spirituality contained in both images and words in this book celebrates life, while it also reminds us that we can become more than a "common denominator." We can be both ordinary and extraordinary. The images alone will give extended experiences of insight, wisdom, guidance, serenity, and hope. This is a book to return to over and over again.

"One Song: A New Illuminated Rumi" is every bit as beautiful as the original book, "The Illuminated Rumi". The artwork is breath-taking and, it is as inspirational as the poetry of Rumi.
Plus, a bonus c.d is included by "The Illumination Band" which features music and words by/or inspired by Rumi's poetry. If you liked "The Illuminated Rumi", you will not be disappointed in "One Song"!

Michael Green's mastery of graphic design is the perfect complement to Rumi's mastery of mystical poetry.

I highly recommend this to everyone who loves mystical poetry and appreciates illuminated design...

PS - I don't consider the musical CD much of a value-add, but even if you didn't resonate with the music (as was the case with me), the book is well worth the expense.
This is a beautiful book with thoughtful and eyepleasing art work reflecting the gentle yet so meaningful poetry of Rumi. The accompanying disk is a delightful range of blue grass style songs that are nectar to the ears. I had seen this book or one like it when I was travelling about 5 years ago and it had left an indellible impression. I wasn't sure if I was buying the same thing, but this book is so delightful and nourishing that I am sure it must be the same book - I dont care now anyway, because what I have bought is the perfect package.
