Book Publishing

As part of her role as a cultural ambassador, Lola has funded the publication of several notable books over the years.

Those titles include Uzbekistan: An Experience of Cultural Treasures to Colour, a dazzling exploration of Uzbekistan’s cultural heritage, from fifth-century architecture to modern-day masterpieces. Another visually stunning work, Infinite Light focuses on Chingiz Akhmarov—a 20th century Uzbek muralist, portraitist, and tutor who established his own school of fine art and, in turn, indelibly influenced Uzbekistan’s cultural development. Meanwhile, The Renaissance of Uzbek Silk traces the country’s rich history of silk manufacture, journeying from its mythical beginnings to the masterful innovations of today’s artisans. In her commitment to expanding worldwide understanding of her home country’s many cultural achievements, Lola has also funded the English translation of one of Uzbekistan’s most widely read classics: Abdulla Qadiri’s Days Gone By, a 1922 novel that laid the foundation for the Uzbek school of Romance literature.
