'Will revive the wanderlust, even of those who have "been everywhere, seen everything".' (New York Times Book Review) 'This is a wonderful new contribution, it reflects current scholarship in a easy to read way and demystifies Islamic art.' (Catherine Asher, Department of Art History, University of Minnesota) 'Islamic Arts is a visual as well as an intellectual treat, a successful collaboration of the best contemporary authors and the best contemporary design.' (Walter B Denny, Department of Art History, University of Massachusetts at Amherst) 'Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing.' (Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London) 'The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods...I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools.' (Joachim Pissarro, Yale University)From the Publisher:
In the 1000 years following the revelations to the Prophet Muhammad in Mecca in the early seventh century AD, artists the Taj Mahal, from illuminated copies of the Koran to exquisite decorative arts: ceramics, textiles and metalwork. Although executed in different countries and across a vast time span, there are, nonetheless, common features in this creative flowering that justify the term 'Islamic art'.
In this comprehensive survey, the authors highlight those characteristics that connect the various arts of all the Islamic lands, without minimizing the differences. Dividing the time into three periods: 600-900, 900-1500 and 1500-1800, they set the artistic development in each era within its historical context and use art as a window into Islamic culture.
Written in a lively and accessible style, and illustrated throughout with photographs, maps and plans, the book brilliantly captures the essence of Islamic culture as expressed in its buildings, books and applied arts, and provides an essential introduction to the subject for both the student and the general reader.
