Book Cover 3




Book:
The Conference of the Birds

Author:
Farid al-Din Attar

Theme:
Mystical poems


Thinking what to post about this time, I found out this book that I have read some years ago.

It is a story poem about thousands of birds who set out to find a King for their Kingdom.

They cross seven valleys and each valley has a different name and significance. Some birds give up, some die, some decide to return, and many make excuses.

Finally, thirty birds make it through the journey, and when they reach the end they realize that the King or Simurgh they came to look for is merely a reflection of themselves.

While browsing I found so many book covers related to this book but due to shortage of time, all I think about of these three book covers which are enough for me to upload for today.

This is my third post on book covers featuring elements of life,nature, birds and trees.

You can purchased this book from here.
