Chapters: Iran

Sadeghi, Ali Akbar. Abdolrezegh-e Pahlavan. Tehran, 1972. Pictorial laminated boards. Fine. 160,00 EUR
Representative of the picture books from the 1960s and 1970s, published by the Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults ("Kanoon") and illustrated by some of the leading fine artists of the time. Subjects, like that listed above, were often drawn from the Shah Nameh, as well as from other classical literary and folk sources. We have a group of similar titles from the same publisher. Additionally we have a variety of materials reflecting the last decades of the repressive Pahlavi dynasty and its paradoxically flourishing cultural scene, for example, books by the cartoonist Ardeshir Mohasses.
Exhibitor: Alexanderplatz Books Tel: 001 212 4736723 mjjanal@aol.com
The title is up for the start of the antiquarian book fair.
