The Chester Beatty exhibition Lapis and Gold, The Story of the Ruzbihan Qur’an was named of its calligrapher, Ruzbihan Muhammad al-Tab‘i al-Shirazi. It is equally the quality, extent and complexity of its decorative programme, the work of a team of highly-skilled, yet anonymous artists and craftsmen, that sets it apart from most other 16th-century Persian Qur’ans.
Lapis and Gold: Exploring Chester Beatty’s Ruzbihan Qur’an is the accompanying catalogue written by Elaine Wright.
