WHAT YOU ARE BUYING/offerDING ON
To see a video of the Haggadah from Start to finish, please visit this EDITION FACSIMILE. A Song of David.. In 1980 Richard and Beatrice Levy commissioned the artist David Moss to create a single hand-written and richly illuminated Haggadah on parchment for their personal collection of Judaica. Moss used the opportunity to create a wide-ranging visual commentary on Jewish history and experience. Using vivid and original metaphors, Moss confronts and illuminates some of the basic themes of Judaism: freedom, the passing on of tradition, persecution and the connection between the Passover story, the diaspora and the Land of Israel.
Each page of Moss’s folio-sized Haggadah makes a visual and intellectual statement that surprises, delights and educates the viewer. Artistically, the work combines a spectacular variety of media: calligraphy, micrography, gouaches, gold leaf, acrylics and paper-cuts. This work accomplishes one of the original goals of the illuminated Haggadah: to stimulate the mind and the interest of the Seder's participants. More than a Haggadah, Moss’s creation evolved into a broadly researched, imaginative and intensely personal reaction to the events of the Exodus and the Passover celebration.
The materials used in the facsimile reflect the publishers’ hope that it will be treasured and passed down for hundreds of years. The paper, made especially for this edition, is chemically neutral for longevity. The gold-stamped binding is in strong, full goat skin leather. The facsimile contains all the intricate paper cut-outs of the original volume; these were produced with laser technology.
The finest craftsmanship and the best contemporary technology insure that the facsimile is as close as possible to the original. All artistic decisions were made by Moss who worked closely with Martino Mardersteig and his master printers at the Stamperia Valdonega in Verona, Italy.
The last available copy of A Song of David sold for $35,000.
