Hassan Massoudy's elegant calligraphy depicts the four seasons of the garden. From the icy palettes of winter and the fading hues of autumn to delicate spring growth and the dazzling sunshine and blooms of summer, he captures in calligraphy what countless poets have wrought with words. Massoudy draws his seasonal inspirations from writers and artists, including Kahlil Gibran, Henri Matisse, Lao Tzu, William Blake and Victor Hugo, as well as from Hungarian, Spanish, Turkish and Japanese proverbs.

Newspapers & Magazines
'Hassan Massoudy's calligraphies are arranged to loosely follow the seasons, beginning and ending with autumn: sombre, wintry hues at one end, brilliant tones full of vibrant reds at the other.' Dr. Venetia Porter, The British Museum; 'Veritable written landscapes.' Liberation; 'A feast for the eyes and balm for the soul.' Telerama; 'The triumph of this inspirational book is ultimately Massoudy's, who not only selected the texts, but created the exquisitely beautiful compositions.' Maria Golia, The Middle East; 'In bright, broad strokes mingling with inventive, intricate shapes, Massoudy describes the garden's four seasons with sayings from some of the artists who have inspired him.'
