مقامات الحريري


assignment

For my Illuminated Manuscripts class, our final project was to pick a kind of manuscript, research it, and then create 10 folios of it. We were allowed to use modern materials, but we had to do the calligraphy by hand.

My Role

Because of my interest in Islamic art, I chose to research the Maqamat al-Hariri, a thirteenth century piece of Arabic literature. I researched the topic, examined a facsimile copy in the RIT library, and recreated one section of the text.
