This month’s cover is from the work al-Amthāl al-sāʹirah min shiʹr al-Mutanabbī, wa-al-Rūznāmjah, which was contributed to Arabic Collections Online from Princeton University. It is a collection of sayings, proverbs, and aphorisms by 10th-century poet Abū al-Tayyib Ahmad ibn al-Husayn al-Mutanabbī, considered one of the greatest classical poets in the Arabic language.

Arabic Collections Online is a mass digitization project, led by New York University in Abu Dhabi and partner institutions, which aims to preserve and provide free open access to a wide variety of Arabic language books in subjects such as literature, philosophy, law, religion, and more.
