NECON Triple X Flyer Image

The central image is by Edmund Sullivan who illustrated a translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam by Edward Fitzgerald in 1913.
The Rubaiyat itself is a collection of quatrains written during the course of Omar Khayyam’s life – May 31, 1048 to December 4, 1131. Khayyam was a Persian poet, mathematician and scientist. The original illustration depicts Fitzgeralds translation of Khayyam’s quatrain number 26.

Oh, come with old Khayyam, and leave the wine
To talk; one thing is certain, that life flies;
One thing is certain, and the rest is lies;
The flower that once has blown forever dies.
