Islamic Arts A&i (Art & Ideas)by Jonathan Bloom
Synopses & Reviews
Islamic Arts, a comprehensive survey covering a thousand years, highlights those characteristics that connect the various arts of the Islamic lands without minimizing the differences. The book is divided into three time periods: 600-900, 900-1500 and 1500-1800, and in each section analyses architecture, the arts of the book, decorative arts and the arts of the loom. Islamic Arts brilliantly captures the essence of Islamic culture.
