Marc Shanker's handsome, large-size collection of 45 etchings illustrates wonderfully wise Judeo-Spanish proverbs. The book includes moving essays about Sephardic family life and culture by Shanker, Antonio Muñoz Molina, and T.A. Perry, author of "The Moral Proverbs of Santob de Carrión, Jewish Wisdom in Christian Spain." To see a few samples of Marc's work, visit the JCultcha Gallery.

“Marc Shanker has turned [proverbs] into images . . . that look like fairy tale illustrations at times and, at others, like scenes glimpsed in a child’s nightmare.”—Antonio Muñoz Molina
