Entry Description

This Art Book communicates the uniqueness and importance of the works of His
Highness Aga Khan III.

Challenge
To compile accurate documentation specifically the time line.
Every step was taken to highlight the enormous activities and achievements
in individual sections of the book, including personal interviews for oral traditions,
archival materials such as new papers, video clips and personal accounts.

Original source material of His Highness Aga Khan III was used to highlight the value
of his teachings. Identifying relevant photos and individuals with private collections was
a connecting delight. This process unfolded interesting stories and resulted in a great
collection of photos.
