Falnama is the name of a genre used in Turkish and Iranian literature and hails from the seventeenth century's Islamic traditions. Inspired by a book at Topkapi Palace Museum presented to Sultan I. Ahmed, the Falnama was used by oracles, miniaturized in vignette workshops, and written by Turkish and Persian poets of that era. This version uses 40 beautifully illustrated cards with traditional imagery that are re-illustrated with contemporary perspectives. Keywords on the cards and short stories written as poems in the guidebook present modern interpretations, giving readers answers to their important questions, or wishes, in an easy-to-understand format.
