Limited Edition! Only 613 Signed and Numbered copies in print.
Designed, painted and handwritten by Artist Benjamin Hassan, The Illuminations in the Sephardic Haggadah are warm and inviting, inspired by decorative details from synagogues worldwide, and these details are enhanced with accents from nature, flowers, birds and butterflies. Each illumination is painted in watercolor, in rich, vibrant tones. The Haggadah even comes complete with King Solomon's Shir HaShirim (Song of Songs) hand written at the end. The overall feel of the design and layout is clean and crisp. The illuminations are not cluttered and overdone, so the text is clear and easily legible.
The Hebrew pages are printed side by side with an English translation complete with lucid English instructions by R' Jonathan Cohen from London, UK. The English body text is typefaced in "Myriad" for it's superb clarity and legibility, and these pages are designed to complement their Hebrew counterparts.
