Binding pages in a protective cover was and still is an important step in producing manuscripts and books. The flat surfaces of these covers, both inside and outside, give craftsmen of all ages the opportunity to use them for decorative purposes, as well to include information about the book itself. Using examples from the Aga Khan Museum Collection, Bita Pourvash explores various decorative techniques such as tooling, stamping, filigree, gilding, and lacquer painting, with a focus on Iranian bindings of the 15th to early-19th centuries.
