1,000 Years of the Persian Book

This is not my work, but found it interesting.

The exhibition "A Thousand Years of the Persian Book" March 2014
"Around the 7th, 8th Century, after Persia became part of the Islamic world, Persian was on the decline. The language was not being used. But by the 10th Century Eastern parts of the Islamic Empire, the Abbasids that ruled out of Baghdad, became little too far flung and Arabic was not as dominant. Regional rulers and dynasties that arose - the Samanids, the Saffarids, the Ghaznavids, started to encourage the use of Persian."
