Cover illustration and design of Volume I
Title treatment, artwork, layout and embellishments are done by me. The cover makes nods to the art of the Ottoman Muslims. The backpanel is a synthesis of Quran illuminated manuscipt and Ushak carpet motifs; the florals are inspired by Ottoman metallic thread embroidery; the front cover artwork borrows visual elements of Ottoman-style illumination, hinting at the art direction of the interiors.
