Amid the many jewels of ancient Islam, decorative book binding shines particulary bright. Persian Safavid-style designs represented a high point in the art of the book. These bindings often feature centralized designs of medallions, quadrants, plant and animal motifs, pentagonal flap closures, and elaborately decorated “doublures” (interior covers), along with exquisite creations in cut-out leather, colored papers, and gilding. Symmetry is the hallmark of this style.
The original binder of this design used reddish-brown goatskin, real gold, lacquer, and paint to achieve balance in his creation. Dating back to the 17th century, this artwork comes from a rich handicraft tradition.
