Islamic Arts Paperback
Part of the Art & Ideas series
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 each section analyses architecture, the arts of the book, decorative and applied arts.
Islamic Arts brilliantly captures the essence of Islamic culture.
