Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Survey's Islamic art in its myriad cultural and regional variation during the first twelve centuries after the revelations of The Prophet. Without minimizing the differences, focuses on the temporal and geographical continuity of certain characteristics. Considers buildings, books, and applied arts. Highly illustrated, mostly with color photographs but also with maps and building plans.
