Sheikh Zayed: An Eternal Legacy
All prices include VAT
Part of Assouline’s special series, The Ultimate Collection, which is an homage to the art of luxury bookmaking. Books in the collection are hand-bound using traditional techniques, with color plates hand-tipped on art-quality paper; each page of this limited-edition series bears the unique imprint of the artisan. Complimentary white gloves and signature canvas tote bag are included with each purchase from Assouline’s Ultimate Collection.
This handcrafted volume is stored in a luxury silk clamshell case, and authored by arts consultant, cultural strategist, and editor, Myrna Ayad. Dedicated to the founding father and first president of the UAE, Sheikh Zayed, this compelling addition to the Ultimate Collection examines Sheikh Zayed’s enduring legacy through the pillars that defined his life—as a father, a unifier, a conservationist, a faithful man, and a modernist. The volume brings Sheikh Zayed to vivid life through archival photographs and exclusive interviews with politicians and family members who knew the ruler intimately.
As this year marks the extraordinary, 50th anniversary of the United Arab Emirates, Sheikh Zayed: An Eternal Legacy is a fitting, reverent ode not only it’s creation, but to the Father of the UAE himself. This incredible volume reveals that more than fifteen years after the end of his reign, Sheikh Zayed lives on in all of the men and women who are continuing his work, steering the UAE into a bright and progressive future.
