Description

This small display investigates paper dyes and writing inks used in medieval Persian manuscripts and provides an insight into how these exquisite manuscripts were made. These delicate materials have a tendency to fade and degrade, so a better understanding of their composition, manufacture and use is essential to their preservation.
