Book Description

This groundbreaking book explores the emergence of Persian albums in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and examines the ways the albums evolved into portable collections created to preserve and display art. Beautifully illustrated with many rare and previously unpublished images, the book demonstrates how the practice of album-making opens a fresh vista on the Persian art tradition.
