This publication shows us another side of Iran, a side we don't read about in the newspapers or see on CNN. New Visual Culture of Modern Iran reveals images of a rich graphic design tradition: fairytale-like book covers and posters, wonderful magazines, newspapers and photography. This book surveys the visual language that represents current Iranian society, and gives you an idea of what's really happening in this fascinating country. It reviews how Islam's enduring presence has helped shape contemporary visual culture and describes the cross- pollination of separate disciplines that have created a unique variety of modern images, scarcely influenced by other global styles or tastes.
