The Conference of the Birds is a lyrical and richly illustrated story of love, faith, and the beauty of the journey towards realisation. Peter Sis’s retelling and illustration of this twelfth-century Persian epic poem by Farid Ud-Din Attar tells the story of a flock of birds in search of the true king, Simorgh, who lives on the mountain of Kaf. Drawn from all species, the flock travels through the seven valleys: quest, love, understanding, detachment, unity, amazement, and death.
