Update - Islamic Painted Page database: expansion plus consistent transliteration

The Islamic Painted Page database at www.islamicpaintedpage.com has received a further upgrade. 

This database enables users to locate reproductions, commentaries and online images of Persian, Ottoman, Arab, Mughal and other paintings, illuminations and bindings up to c.1750 CE.

Following the addition of a full search by picture description facility in 2014, the new upgrade resolves issues about transliteration and MS references across the entire database, which has now been enlarged to almost 21,500 entries.
