About This Book

This volume commemorates the 10th anniversary of the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia. Since it was founded, the collection has grown enormously. The museum itself has also gone through a transformation. Readers are taken behind the scenes to explore exhibitions, galleries and display concepts, as well as the activities of the Conservation and Education departments and the unique asset of the Scholar's Library. All of these elements are seen through the lens of the award-winning photographer Peter Sanders. Displaying more than 200 items from the collection, the main focus of this book is on the creativity of Muslim artisans and their talent to transmit the aesthetic potential of everything from the mundane to the magnificence of the Word of God.
