Description

The Islamic world has created a wealth of art treasures, and this book explores that rich heritage. The diversity of decorative Islamic art forms is simply breath-taking, extending from the Arabic calligraphy of the early Qurans and the beautiful Fatimid woodcarvings of 12th- and 13th-century Egypt to the elegant Ottoman carpets woven in the 14th and 15th centuries, and the exquisite lusterware produced by potters in Islamic Spain in the 15th century. Meticulously researched and lavishly illustrated with more than 250 photographs, reproductions and fine-art paintings, this superb book offers a wonderful overview of Islamic art.
