Associated with the Islamic Golden Age, Persian Safavid-style designs represented a high point in the art of the book. Symmetry is the hallmark of these bindings which feature medallions, a pentagonal envelope flap closure and elaborately decorated interior covers, exquisite creations in cut-out leather and gilding. Our book cover portrays a remarkable leather filigree pattern incorporating handtooled motifs that retain an elegance and style even in our modern context. 176pp  h140mm  x  w100mm  x s20mm
