5.0 out of 5 stars A good insight
Somewhat academic but very informative and well set out. I am visiting a number of sites explained in the book and feel it has left me well prepared.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Hard Read
While the pictures are good, and the book is printed on high quality glossy paper, the text is thick and hard to follow. There are too many facts crammed in without enough context, and the tone is relentlessly dull. One gains little sense of where each item fits into the overall picture. A confusing book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful insight into the exquisite architechture, 26 Sep 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Islamic Art and Architecture (World of Art) (Paperback)
I had been looking for a book like this recently and as was overjoyed by the information in the book. It is for somebody who is interested in architetural creativeness that has existed in this world and was joyous to read. It gives somebody with no knowledge of islam architecture and culture and very good start and builds on it.
I would recommend this to even the general reader interested in non-fiction type books.

This review is from: Islamic Art and Architecture (World of Art) (Paperback)
Lots of information and a good read. The book is broken up into manageable sections illustrated well throughout. a bit on the small size for art books, but that was an assumption on my behalf as I did not check the dimensions and thought it would be A4 size. Great value for money.
