The Aga Khan Program at Harvard University publishes scholarly works on the history of Islamic art and architecture. Established in 1983, Muqarnas: An Annual on the Visual Cultures of the Islamic World, is a volume of essays on art and architectural history. Muqarnas 34 is the most recent volume. Textual primary sources for visual culture are featured in Supplements to Muqarnas. Thirteen of these volumes have now been published, the latest of which is The Arts of Ornamental Geometry: A Persian Compendium on Similar and Complementary Interlocking Figures. A Volume Commemorating Alpay Özdural. This collective study focuses on a unique anonymous medieval document on ornamental geometry featuring geometrical constructions and textual instructions in Persian. Selections from the unpublished work of Alpay Özdural (d. 2003) on this subject have been updated with original contributions by Jan P. Hogendijk, Elaheh Kheirandish, Gülru Necipoğlu, and Wheeler M. Thackston.
Both Muqarnas and Supplements to Muqarnas may be purchased through Brill.
