Mirrors of the Unseen: Journeys in Iran

by Jason Elliot - £12.99  Pan Macmillan (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330486576 | ISBN 10: 0330486578

The country - its culture, its history and its people - behind the headlines.
Drawing on three years of travel and research, Mirrors of the Unseen offers a rare and timely portrait of Iran, introducing us to the sublime architecture of Isfahan, the forests of the north, the bleak landscapes of Kurdistan and the urban contradictions of the capital, Tehran.
An exploration of Iranís immensely rich heritage and a personal enquiry into the nature of Persian and Islamic art, it is a book rich in detail, wit and discovery.

"Masterfully comprehensible accounts of Iranís long and complex history, beautiful impassioned descriptions of Islamic art and architecture, some surprising and fascinating encounters with the locals Ė this is travel writing at its very best."
