The Shahnama digitisation project has now been completed. A full overview report can now be downloaded below in PDF format.
From the 18th of February, the John Rylands Library will be hosting Heroes and Kings, The Shahnama of Ferdowski, an exhibition to celebrate the millenium of the Shahnama. On display will be a collection of manuscripts from the Rylands collection, as well as art and museum pieces from the time.
The Exhibition is free and runs until the 27th June 2010. As well as the main exhibition, there will be events taking place including dance and film showings. See the flyer below for more information.
Our presentation at the NOWAL Digitisation Exchange of Experience can be found below. The PPT was exported using Apple Keynote, so has less functionality than the original Keynote file.The presentation includes an overview of the Shahnama project.
The digitised images of the Shahnama can now be viewed via LUNA, our new browser interface. Visit the images by following the link below.
