A fine modern Sangorski binding, replicating one of their traditional designs for the "Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam".
Sangorski and Sutcliffe's interpretations of the Rubaiyat are of course justly famous. "The Great Omar", a legendary copy in an exquisite jewelled binding, was on its way to America when it sank with The Titanic in 1912. Francis Sangorski died later that year. A new version of that binding, in an oak casket by David Linley, was sold at Sotheby's on 13 July 2006 for £28,000.
