The Crescent Moon
ペルシャの定型詩 オマル・ハイヤームの詩「ルバイヤート」の始まりからというが、馴染みの無い私にとってはアラビアンナイトの世界のイメージを受ける。三日月と題されたこのイラストはマッキントッシュのこのASIA上の一連のイラストの中で最も好きなもののひとつです。このイラストは荒俣氏の本には紹介されていなかった。

Frank McIntosh starts a new series of designs with this month's cover. They will be decorative treatments of episodes from the poetry and fairy-tales that most of us Westerners remember from our childhoods as oriental literature.The March cover is illustrative of the quatrain in the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam,beginning,"Yon rising Moon that looks for us again."
