First edition, later printing. A fine copy in fine jacket. Over the course of ten centuries, Islam developed a rich written heritage that is visible in painting, calligraphies and manuscripts. This book explores this aspect of the Islamic history with studies of the materials and tools of literate culture including pens, inks and papers, Qur'an, Persian and Mughal illustrated manuscripts, printed books and Islamic erotica. All paintings, calligraphies and manuscripts discussed here are held in collection at Indiana University.
