About This Book
A comprehensive survey covering a thousand years of Islamic arts, from early Arabic script at the time of Muhammad to woven arts in the 19th century, this book 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 Islamic architecture, books, and applied arts.
Written in a lively and accessible style, this book brilliantly captures the essence of Islamic culture and provides an essential introduction to the student and general reader.
