Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This, and the other half (Islamic Art and Architecture, 650-1250) are really a good and accurate work of the Islamic Art. Very complete, you can easily search art and architecture for geographical region. Very rich text and beautiful coloured illustrations. Think it is very efficient for a beginner and a magnificent work even for those who are into Islamic art and Architecture for a long time.

Format: Paperback
Testo fondamentale nello studio dell'arte islamica e in grado di mostrare anche ai meno esperti i tesori di un mondo troppo a lungo sconosciuto in occidente.

GORGEOUS ISLAM 1 April 2006
By Shannon Deason - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Simply a spectacular book. The text is fascinating and the images are first rate. The art and architecture of Islam is elegant and beautiful, obviously when you think of Islamic Architecuture of this period you think of the Taj Mahal, which of course, is one of the most spectacular buildings in the world, but there are so many others. This book will make you really appreciate the Architectuere and Art of this wonderful religion. Highly recommended.

Definitely one I plan on keeping. 3 Mar. 2013
By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For any enthusiast of Islamic art and architecture this is definitely a good source to have. Even the cover of the book is a good way to learn about the culture and the meaning of their art. I've purchased many books throughout my years in school and this is definitely one I plan on keeping. Its interest goes further than just choosing a courses on a required list of course to take, but in terms of design it might be tedious, but when designing with this book in mind, attention is put into every detail.

Really enjoyed the images in this book. Got it for a class, and I personally thought it was one of the best written Art History books. It's actually readable.
