We are very pleased to bring plenty of interesting content in this Issue No. 3 of Islamic Arts eMagazine. There is a very interesting story from the old town of Pocitelj, located in Herzegovina, which represents the oriental pearl of Mediterranean culture. Two other cities in Spain are homes to great masterpieces of Islamic architecture: Cordoba, with the famous Great Mosque and Granada, with the Alhambra Palace. In addition to the extremely interesting text on these subjects, there are fantastic photos of these two cultural monuments for our readers to enjoy.
You can also read interviews with great artists, including: Malik Anas Al-Rajab (from Iraq), Orhan Dağli (from Turkey), Haris Memija (from Bosnia and Herzegovina), eL-Seed (from Canada) and Khawar Bilal (from Pakistan). In addition, we present the “David Museum” in Copenhagen, which holds one of the most valuable collections of Islamic art in Europe.
We recommend the central article of this issue which presents “The Art of Tugra,” a form of Ottoman script which was the sultan’s signature, and is a special aspect of Islamic calligraphy. The article is accompanied by photographs from the Tugra collections at the Bosniak Institute in Sarajevo. There is also an article on how to make a digital arabesque in Adobe Illustrator®, along with many other topics.
We hope that you will enjoy this new 268 page issue of Islamic Arts eMagazine.
