Hossein Amirsadeghi, with essays by Sir Mark Allen, Roger Upton, Patrick Morel, Sir Terence Clark, S. Kent Carnie and Robert Michael Palmer

‘...stunningly illustrated...a fascinating exploration of the ancient mystique of these ìnobleî birds.’ – The Scotsman

Believed to have originated in the Near East and Central Asia thousands of years ago, falconry soon spread to other parts of the world. By the Middle Ages it was already as popular among the European nobility as it was among the Arab caliphate.

Today the ‘sport of kings’ is has a greater following than ever before, with some 100,000 falconers active in over 60 countries. This beautiful book traces its history through the ages and across continents, from the very first representation of the sport in the 3rd millennium BC to today’s passionate (and often colourful) falconers. Along the way it separates myth from reality, explores the sport’s traditions, techniques and lore, and delves into the lives of dedicated huntsmen such as the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, Kublai Khan and King Philippe II Augustus of France.

Lavishly illustrated throughout with a mixture of period depictions and new commissioned photography, and presented in a cloth-covered slipcase with 10 exclusive collectors' prints, Sky Hunters: The Royal Presentation Print Collection offers the most enduring and beautiful testament to this ancient, exhilarating sport.

Hossein Amirsadeghi is a writer, publisher and documentary filmmaker.
