The Fall of Constantinople


I’m honored to have been able to be a part of a really cool project recently when the Folio Society contacted me about doing a book cover for Steve Runciman’s 1965 classic “The Fall of Constantinople 1453.” I did a curving piece of Thulth calligraphy based on a Hadith they had selected. They were nice enough to send me a copy, too!

For those who don’t know, the Folio Society is an amazing company based in the UK that takes classic works and reprints them with unique and beautiful bindings, be they leather, gilded, boxed, and more. Very cool collection, I highly recommend checking them out.
