Muqarnas 39 offers a rich panoply of studies extending across the breadth of the Muslim realm—from Andalusia to India—and across a millennium of years. The volume’s topics range from the material artifacts of textiles, pen boxes, fourteenth-century manuscripts, Ottoman Treasury valuables, a nineteenth-century Ottoman coin collection, Classical marble frieze slabs, royal palanquins, and sphero-conical vessels to Orientalist internalization, mosque and city architecture—the construction even of an entire city—and the archaeological, museological, legal, and sociological analysis of such. Luxuriously illustrated and thoroughly researched, each of the twelve articles presents a visual and engaging unpacking of an aspect of Islamicate culture that will introduce its reader to new and fascinating insights.

Note to Contributors: Muqamas will consider for publication articles on all aspects of Islamic visual culture, historical and contemporary. Articles submitted for publication are subject to review by the editors and/or outside readers. Manuscripts should be no more than 40 double-spaced typed pages of text (not including endnotes) and have no more than 15-20 illustrations (both graphics and black-and-white glossy photographs; colour prints or slides are not acceptable). Exceptions can be made for articles dealing with unpublished visual or textual primary sources, but if they are particularly long, they may be divided into two or more parts for publication in successive volumes. .
Both text and endnotes must be double-spaced; endnotes should conform to the usage of the Chicago Manual of Style. Illustrations should be labelled and accompanied by a double-spaced caption list.

For the transliteration of Arabic and Persian, Muqamas uses the Encyclopaedia of Islam system, but with the omission of subscript bars and the substitution of q for ~ and j for dj; for Ottoman Turkish, authors are given the choice of the EI system or modern Turkish orthography. All transliterated words and phrases in the text and transliterated author's names and titles in the endnotes must follow this system. Exceptions are proper nouns (names of persons, dynasties, and places) and Arabic words that have entered the English language and have generally recognised English forms (e.g., madrasa, iwan, mihrab, Abbasid, Muhammad); these should be anglicised and not italicised; place names and names of historical personages with no English equivalent should be transliterated but, aside from 'ayn and hamza, diacritical marks should be omitted (e.g., Maqrizi, Fustat, San 'a) .A detailed style sheet and further information can be obtained from the editorial office.
