2022 DIARY SHIRAZ MIDI VERSO WEEK-TO-VIEW
Our Shiraz series has been inspired by an exquisite piece of Eastern bookbinding. During the 16th century, Shiraz was one of the three Islamic centres actively celebrated for artistry. The craftspeople of the region were especially known for producing gorgeously decorated texts which were often used in commerce with the Ottoman Empire.
Originally crafted from rich black goatskin that was embossed, gilded, handpainted with flowers and rosettes, and overlaid with delicate gold filigree, this design is said to have been commissioned by one of the art-minded Safavid princes of Shiraz and was, at one time, the property of Suleiman the Magnificent. A part of modern-day Iran, Shiraz is still known as a city of poetry, literature, wine and flowers - a city flourishing both in its abundant gardens and within the arts.
