Traces Of Sepharad (Huellas De Sefarad) Etchings Of Judeo Spanish Proverbs by Marc Shanker

The first book to use Ladino proverbs as the basis of fine art. The book combines 45 interpretive etchings with literary and scholarly essays by one of Spain’s most prominent novelists and an internationally respected Sephardic and Biblical scholar. The etchings are witty, irreverent, whimsical, and profound, and offer a window into the Sephardic culture and experience. Mr. Shanker’s style matches perfectly the proverbs: naively simple and deeply philosophical.
