This spring Moleiro's luxury limited editions of illuminated manuscripts travel to the Arabian Peninsula for an exclusive display at the Abu Dhabi International Book Fair, the beating heart of the publishing industry in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa).
Visit our stand 8C36 (International Area), where you will be able to leaf through the masterpieces of calligraphy and manuscript painting, books that in the past took pride of place in libraries of sultans and kings.
One of these jewels that will surely leave you spellbound is the Book of Felicity (Metali'ü'l-saadet) from the Golden Age of Ottoman art. The book was commissioned by the sultan Murad III himself, and reflects his interest in astrology, divination, marvels, myths, intriguing stories and curiosities in faraway lands. Translated and adapted from the original work in Arabic Kitab al-Bulhan (Book of Wonders), it is illustrated with absolutely beautiful full-page paintings, lavishly embellished with gold and silver.
Discover this and other codices displayed in Abu Dhabi. The admission to the fair is free. Download your free ticket at ADIBF website.
