Mage (rhymes with sage, noun: from Persian mogh): 1. One of the magi. 2. A Person of exceptional wisdom.

The Magi were members of an ancient Iranian priestly tribe of the same name. Mage Publishers’ logo comes from a design on a seventh-century shroud found in the ancient city of Rey. It depicts Zal being taken up by the mythological bird Simorgh, and represents the spiritual rebirth of Iran.
