Arab Book Design / Oedipus: أوديب [Oedipus]
Arabic translation of three texts on Oedipus by a prolific Egyptian translator Taha Hussein, accompanied with an overdramatic cover and charming mid-century clip art
Small 8°. 194 pp., original illustrated wrappers (wrappers with short tears, folds and rubbed corners, small loss of paper around the spine, inside in a good condition).
A pocket book with striking cover contains Arabic translation of three texts: Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus by Sophocles, and Oedipus by André Gide. It was issued in Cairo as an ephemeral pocket book, illustrated with somehow amusing 1950s clip art.
The translation was made by a prolific Egyptian author Taha Hussein, who despite being blind translated and authored numberless works in Arabic language and was nominated for the Nobel Price 14 times.
