Folios from a Qur'an Manuscript

Folios from a Qur’an Manuscript

Description

This manuscript was created of paper and of an angular script known as “new style script”. In both its medium and calligraphy, these folios reveal the increasing cultural pull of the eastern edge of the Islamic world, a decided shift from the earlier, Mediterranean- focus of the first Islamic centuries
