A beautifully designed book includes erotic poetry and art of a prominent Turkish artist Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu, who was known as a painter and author or monumental public works, still present today in Turkey. His brother Sabahattin was a famous author and film producer, and his sister Mualla Eyüboğlu was a first Turkish female architect.
The book with printed original artwork on the covers was issued in different colours, probably in shades of blackberries. Our wrappers are illustrated in black, as we could also trace examples in red and purple.
Worldcat lists four examples (Universitätsbibliothek München, Universitätsbibliothek der Eberhard Karls Universität, Universitätsbibliothek Erfurt / Forschungsbibliothek Gotha, University of Cyprus Library).
