The Conference of the Birds: A Study of Farid ud-Din Attars Poem Using Jali Diwani Calligraphy
The Conference of the Birds: A Study of Farid ud-Din Attars Poem Using Jali Diwani Calligraphy
by Farah K. Behbehani
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of art; probably the most beautiful book we own, 10 Jan. 2010
One of the most beautiful books we own is The Conference of the Birds by Farah K. Behbahani. Not only is the calligraphy stunning it is also explained in impressive detail.

The principles by which the calligraphy is explained makes this book a delight for visualisation fans as well as anybody interested in typography.

The quality of the printing elevates it to a work of art. Even the bookmark is a pleasure to look at.

We have had some of the pages framed professionally and are using them on the wall like small lithos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing detail, 10 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Schleich Stegosaurus (Toy)
Schleich dinosaurs have invaded our home. They are delightful in their detail and enjoyed by our toddler as well as the adults.

The plastic mold is just the right weight and the finish reveals amazing detail with respect to both colours and texture.

Should you ever forget if you are playing with the stegosaurus or the triceratops the name is printed discreetly on the animal's belly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice colours but don't expect it to light up a room, 10 Jan. 2010
It is a nice design and a great concept but the product does not seem priced right. £100+ is a lot of money for this lamp.

Using the remote control you can decide which colour the lamp outputs. You can control the colour saturation (from saturated to pastel colours) and you control the intensity. There is also a mode where the light cycles through all the different colours; nice for parties.

The lamp will illuminate a wall or part of the ceiling in a room in a gorgeous colour of your choice. It is not powerful enough to illuminate an entire room, even a small one. As such, it is more of a decorative device than a useful lamp.

The remote control uses the radio spectrum so you don't have to point it directly at the lamp when changing light settings. You can't control settings on the lamp itself. The remote is powered by three AAA batteries. The Philips batteries supplied with our lamp lasted just one day but once we replaced them with some supermarket brand batteries everything worked ok again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Was this book written in the 1920s?, 15 Jan. 2007
This book is likely to annoy you as you read through it, only to reward you with few useful facts. It reads as if it was written in an age when women stayed at home to cook and bear children.

A list called "Ways to show her you care" suggests that the father to be should:

- "Take the day off from work and hang around the house with her" (no good if your wife works at an investment bank)

- "Learn a few easy recipes" (seriously insults my cooking).

Reading The Expectant Father as one of several books about expecting a child has taught me that there are some good books available on the subject, but this one is not one of them. I suggest reading the same book as the expectant mother.
