The Gilgamesh Epos in Pictures, Hardback Book

The Gilgamesh Epos in Pictures Hardback


  • Information


Hugo de Reede (1929-2019), artist and archaeological illustrator has worked in Syria for many years.

Gripped by the Gilgamesh Epos and the philosophy narrated in the epic, he created a pictorial book, re-telling the account of Gilgamesh and the eternal mystery of death.

The style of drawing in the book suits the regional art in a remarkable manner and with a humorous touch that is fitting for the region's storytelling tradition.
