Dreamy images from “Plans, elevations, sections, and details of the Alhambra,” Volume 1. A collaboration of Owen Jones, Jules Goury, and Pascual de Gayangos. Published between 1842 and 1845.
I wish I could say I found this one. I know of many Owen Jones folios with wonderful imagery but this one about the Alhambra I had no idea it existed. I found it through my good friend who posts Islamic art who is on Twitter at @ReemK10 and on Instagram at @paperpills10 who I thank very much. If you enjoy Islamic art, please check out her posts which are wonderful. This is only three images and there are two volumes of them.
