The Little Black Fish

The Little Black Fish is one of our most favourite titles. It has been 50 years since the first publication of the book in Persian, and two years since we published its translated version with award winning Farshid Mesghali‘s original illustrations. Since its publication in English, it has received very positive feedback.


Further to our previous post on celebrating 50 years of The Little Black Fish, we are proud to present our second surprise!


There is a limited stock of The Little Black Fish prints, signed by the Hans Christan Andersen Award winner Farshid Mesghali, ready to be framed and decorate your wall! There are only 50 prints available. Hurry to get one of this limited edition treasures while they last.


Order the print:

The illustrations are printed on 32 x 44.5 cm 200 gsm papers and are available at £40.00. Click here to buy.
