Life on the Edge: The decorated margins of Jahangir’s Golshan Album in the Golestan Palace, Tehran

New studies of the great album of paintings, drawings, and calligraphies assembled for the Mughal emperor Jahangir have led to deeper understanding of the rich marginal decorations on each page. The work of his finest artists, these figural and decorative designs reveal both the cosmopolitan range of imperial contacts, and changes in Jahangir’s artistic interests and taste
