ART AND ARCHITECTURE
Islam is the youngest major world religion. Despite this, it is the second largest in the world and has left its mark on human history since the appearance of the prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. This book follows the historical development of the Islamic dynasties and regions and the variety of artistic expression from the inception of the faith until the present day. From decorative elements of buildings to calligraphy and the embellishment of everyday objects, the ornamentation that is most characteristic of Islamic art is displayed in all its richness. The contributions of renowned scholars bring this extraordinary culture to life in this important volume.
