FALNAMA: THE BOOK OF OMENS
Category: Art and architecture of islam
This, the first publication ever devoted to the Falnama as a genre, features intact volumes as well as folios and illustrations now dispersed. These images and their prognostications shed new light on the Safavid and Ottoman artistic, cultural, political and religious landscape. The first ever translations of three of the four copies provide insight into a vivid and enduring aspect of human concern – the unknown.
