manipulation from one of the Reza Abedini .
REZA ABEDINIS PRESENTATION about contemporary Persian typography at the AGI conference in Helsinki in 2003, made clear to those in attendance that the subject merited a book. Iran underwent many changes in the wake of the 1979 Revolution. The sources of creative influence in Iran expanded as a result of the uprising, and the passing of time has incorporated those changes into the countrys cultural fabric in ways that may surprise most Westerners. New Visual Culture of Modern Iran colorfully showcases some of the most innovative and impressive work from illustrators, graphic designers and photographers living and working in Iran today. As Abedini writes in his introduction: This book . . . will give you an insight into the real Iran, other than what the BBC or CNN news would give you!
