The plastic artists and engravers Bruni Heym and Jafar T. Kaki have produced, in collaboration with the Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, a book of engravings, created from the poems of the great contemporary Arab poet Adonis, which has acquired universality with his works.
Adonis, the pseudonym of Ali Ahamad Saíd Ésber, born in 1930 in Quasabín, a village in the north of Syria near the Mediterranean coast, is a personal friend of the engraving artist Jafar T. Kaki, who has illustrated some of the covers of his books translated into Spanish. The multiple awards, recognitions and prizes that Adonis has obtained, can be an added guarantee for the achievement of the Nobel Prize, to which he has been nominated on several occasions.
Since the first chance meeting that Jafar Kaki and Adonis had in Morocco, where they coincided in the International Festival of Asilah in 1985, a great friendship has united both artists. From Adonis came the idea that Kaki should make a book about his poetry, using the poetic language of the arts of the latter as a tool.
