Lilien, Boats-1

Lilien, Boats star of David

I published already a photo of a Star of David from E.M. Lilien’s illustrations to the book Poems from the Ghetto (1902) that I shot myself, but what you see here is a similar illustration with a more prominent Star of David. Haifa designer Hayim Shtayer sent me this splendid scan, and I hurry to show it to you, dear reader, because for me every illustration made by this first Zionist painter is a celebration.
