"...For all of its many adaptations, [Shahnameh] has remained largely unknown in the west except in scholarly circles and among Iranians. But New York based artist Hamid Rahmanian's recent illustrated rendition with translator Ahmad Sadri of Shahnameh could change that." The Guardian

Shahnameh is part myth, part history - beginning with the legend of the birth of the Persian nation. It contains magical birds, superhuman heroes and centuries-long battles. Written over 1,000 years ago, it was meant to protect Persian collective memory amidst a turbulent sea of cultural storms. Originally written in couplets, the new translation and adaptation by Ahmad Sadri retells the mythological tales in prose format. Hamid Rahmanian's spectacular illustrations were created from elements culled from thousands of illuminated manuscripts, lithographs and miniatures dating from the thirteenth to nineteenth centuries, each panel becomes a new work of art, an exquisite collage of traditional forms.
