EPITAPHS The Imprints of Souls across Bosnia and Herzegovina

Longueur: 106 pages35 minutes

Description

The venue for this important artistic endeavour is fitting, though. It is the country of Bosnia and Herzegovina, tiny in size but huge when it comes to history (troublesome as it has been), culture and spirituality.
Nenad Tanović, whose middle name Azijus is derived from his mother's and father's names (Aziza and Jusuf) says that although he was inspired by inscriptions on medieval gravestones in his native country, he created many epitaphs from scratch.
It is no wonder, then, that various versions of these epitaphs have been published over the years. This is the newest, updated, edition in English; it is enriched by newly translated poems/epitaphs by Nenad Azijus Tanović, and extraordinary illustrations.
The illustrator is award-winning Aleksandra Nina Knežević, who takes a keen interest in stećak art, and her original creations bring yet another unique dimension to this book.
