Reseña del editor:

Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva have been known as among the most beautiful cities in the world, for being the centre, perhaps the source of Persian-Arabic civilisation. Only recently have they become accessible to western travellers. Robin Magowan gives a highly descriptive account, the first detailed portrait for many years of what life in these cities is like. Illustrated in colour by Soviet photographer Vladimir Gippenreiter - "Fabled Cities" is an evocation of the splendour and the savagery of the Central Asian tradition. Samarkand, the Rome of central Asia, is a monument to the genius of Timur (Tamerlane). Bukhara developed as a centre of pilgrimage and religious learning to become one of the great holy cities of Islam. This combination of violence and aesthetic refinement is epitomized in Khiva, which saw the last great flowering of Islamic culture in the 19th century. Beautifully designed and produced, "Fabled Cities" is the gift for armchair travellers.. NOTA: El libro no está en español, sino en inglés.

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
