Yazd Notebook - Aylar Shabazi
The ancient Zoroastrian city of Yazd rests high on a barren plain in Iran. The well-preserved mud brick town is captured in this notebook, dotted with sketches of symmetrical iwans and pomegranates impatiently waiting to be picked for traditional feasts. The details and motifs of this most picturesque city are scattered throughout. It contains both lined and graph pages, address entries printed in both English and Persian, and even staves for musical composition. The sketch-quality paper inspires diarists, artists, engineers, or musicians to fill its pages. Illustrator Aylar Shabazi created other such notebooks inspired by cities in Iran, namely Isfahan and Tehran.
