Parviz Kalantari


We are deeply saddened by the loss of Parviz Kalantari, a preeminent Iranian artist. We are privileged to have his brilliant children’s picture book Tahmineh’s Beautiful Bird among the titles published by Tiny Owl. In fact this book has been one of his last works. He was a pioneer artist, introducing the unique tribal lifestyle of Iranian nomads to the world. His concentration on children’s literature shows its importance to him and his love for the subject.

May he rest in peace.
