Deluxe Coffee Table Edition

About the book

Iqbal: An Illustrated Biography (2006) was published by Iqbal Academy Pakistan and ran through several editions within a few years. It remains one of the most popular and critically acclaimed works on Iqbal. The author received the Presidential Iqbal Award – the most prestigious award in the field of Iqbal Studies – for writing this book.

This volume was conceived both as a book as well as an exercise in visual art. One of the ways a piece of art greatly differs from a plain statement of facts is that it provides a virtual experience and stimulates feelings. The artistic aim of this book is to simulate a sense of consulting several resources instead of just one. Through juxtaposition of visuals and words, sometimes in an unusual manner, this volume seeks to create the impression of a well-equipped library where one can check cross-references or even take a break with entertaining diversions and then resume study.

Nearly all available pictures of Iqbal are also included here, some being printed for the first time. Also included are facsimiles from first drafts and manuscripts of his works.

The author acknowledges his debt to Mary Renault’s The Nature of Alexander, which served in some ways as a model for writing this biography.
