About this Item

Falaknuma Hyderabad is an elegantly designed and splendidly illustrated, large format (coffee table) book, with 200 rare colour and black & white photographs. It documents the architecture and history of the Falaknuma palace in all its varied facets. Based on pioneering research drawn from archives in Hyderabad, London and other material, the authors trace for the first time, the history, the beauty and the romance of a great edifice from the genesis of its construction to the present. The legend of Falaknuma together with the social history of the period creates the setting for a detailed documentation of the richness and flamboyance of its interiors, discussing the spirit and context in which they were conceived. The Mirror of the Heavens, a palace which epitomized an era of unparalleled luxury and sophisticated indulgence. The book is authored by George Michell, a reputed scholar/writer from the UK, and Tony Korner, a publisher/writer from New York. They are both, old India hands, and experts on Indian art and architecture. Bharath Ramamrutham himself has done the entire photography of the palace - its exteriors, interiors, architectural details, furniture and rare archival material. The book presents the historical character of the palace, the idiom of 19th century design, the opulence of the Nizam's era and of life in Hyderabad. This endeavour has been possible with the active support and blessings of Princess Esra herself, as well as various other agencies and individuals concerned. Bookseller Inventory # 235471
