About this title


Central Asia is a vibrant mixture of civilizations and tongues; united by Islam, diversified by differing histories, cultures and languages. Iran, Turkey and Afghanistan and their neighbours are famed for their literature and their multi-hued arts and crafts, but few realize how alive, how close to the surface, are their powerful and enduring traditions. "The Orient in a Mirror" counterpoints the colour photographs of Roland and Sabrina Michaud with reproductions of 14th- to 19th-century central Asian miniatures. The two art forms enhance one another, providing a multifaceted insight into the glories of the region - from glimpses of students and solemn mullahs to Afghan horsemen, in a plethora of exotic beauty and colour. This book was acclaimed on first publication in 1980 but was long out of print. It is now republished in a revised and expanded form, with twice as many images.

About the Author:

Roland and Sabrina Michaud are photographers who have specialized in Central, Southeast, and Far East Asia for more than 40 years. They have published many works on the life and culture of these regions, including Caravans to Tartary, India of 1,001 Nights, India in a Mirror, The Great Wall of China, and Abrams' Afghanistan: The Land That Was.
