Islam an Illustrated Journey is a Diamond Jubilee publication produced by Azimuth Editions in conjunction with The Institute of Ismaili Studies. The book is a timely reminder of Islam’s rich legacy and pluralistic heritage and takes readers on a visual journey through Islam’s rich 1400 year history.

On 3 November 2018, the first book launch was held at Ismaili Centre, Toronto. Attendees were given first-hand insights into the approach taken by the authors Dr Farhad Datary and Professor Zulfikar Hirji to produce an accessible and illustrated account of Islamic civilisation from Late Antiquity up to the modern-day.
