The Szyk Haggadah

People Are Talking

The new edition of The Szyk Haggadah, which has been acquired by prestigious institutions worldwide, has been acclaimed by experts and collectors around the globe.

“We Jews have been telling the story of Passover through the Haggadah for almost a millennium, but never has it been as stirringly visualized as by Arthur Szyk, and certainly never as beautifully printed and produced as in this majestic edition.”

— Art Spiegelman
Pulitzer Prize-winning author and creator of Maus

“The new edition of The Szyk Haggadah restores the beauty of this masterpiece of 20th century Jewish art and makes its powerful symbolism accessible to a new generation of readers. Irvin Ungar’s decades-long focus and devotion to restoring Szyk’s artistic oeuvre reaches its apotheosis with this magnificent publication.”

— Richard Siegel
Executive Director Emeritus, Foundation for Jewish Culture

“A tour de force blending of tradition with technology has resulted in a magnificent volume that will introduce Arthur Szyk’s masterful interpretation of the Passover Haggadah to a new generation.”

— Grace Cohen Grossman,
Senior Curator, Skirball Museum

“A new deluxe edition of the illuminated Haggadah created by Arthur Szyk 70 years ago will be published in early 2008. Thanks to the current state of digital colour printing, publisher Irvin Ungar promises this will be the most faithful reproduction of the original artwork ever achieved. It may also be the most ambitious publication ever undertaken entirely with digital printing technology.”
