Islamic Manuscripts from the Walters

In May, the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore launched a new online exhibit entitled, “Poetry and Prayer: Islamic Manuscripts from the Walters.” The Walters is in the process of digitizing all their Islamic manuscripts, and this website demonstrates the amazing progress they’re making. Check out the calligraphy section—the images are beautiful, and illustrate the wide range of manuscripts that are part of the Walters’ collection.
