Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Print


With letter type I printed the first article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations in Latin. This was based on the first declaration of the United States of America Constitution and the French constitution of 1791.
The capital “O” was painted and gilded by hand.

The English and French translations are:

All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

Tous les êtres humains naissent libres et égaux en dignité et en droits. Ils sont doués de raison et de conscience et doivent agir les uns envers les autres dans un esprit de fraternité.

This is followed by an excerpt of a poem written by Yevgeni Yevtushenko called Babi Yar.
