Only 100 copies of these hand-printed folio editions of five classic tales by Idries Shah - 'The Happiest Man In the World'; 'Mushkil Gusha'; 'The King, the Dog and the Golden Bowl'; 'Hatim Tai'; and 'The Tale of Melon City' - have been produced.
They have been typeset by Gloucester Typesetting and printed by The Letter Press Collective in Bristol on a Swiss-proof Fag 40 press using German Zercall 903 White Smooth paper.
Illustrations by local West Country artist Lucia Leyfield capture the essence of all five stories in subtle watercolour.
Each copy is individually numbered and comes in its own handsomely-embossed clamshell box and cardboard packing case.
We’re confident their unsurpassed quality will give immense pleasure to recipients, while their scarcity makes them ideal collectors’ items.

All proceeds from the sale of these editions will help pay for the charitable distribution of Idries Shah books in Afghanistan and literacy support programmes in the UK and USA.
