An American Quran

In a project that is sure to raise eyebrows, Sandow Birk has produced an illustrated/illuminated, English manuscript of the Quran. I don't know if Muslims ever produced an illustrated edition of the entire Quran although its certainly the case that certain scenes or stories have been translated into forms of illustrative art, such as miniatures. But this is a sensitive area especially when it comes to depicting actual characters. Nevertheless the project is ongoing and will catch plenty of attention. Read more here. The entire thing was on display in NYC at the PPOW Gallery until October 9th.
