The Jesselson Prize

The Israel Museum, 1990

“Ya’akov Boussidan has been engaged in the artistic design of Hebrew books for many years.

His personal interpretations, which go beyond illustration, are based on profound research into the Jewish content of the book itself. This special approach is expressed in his two versions of the Song of Songs (Shir Ha’Shirim) and in the Haggadah that he calligraphed and illustrated.

Boussidan devotes special attention to the Hebrew letter, which forms an organic part of his work. His original work is
always executed with perfection; careful attention is given to every element including the quality of paper and printing.”

Jurors: Dr. Iris Fishof (Chairman), Izzika Gaon, Menahem Berman
