5.0 out of 5 stars A definite feast for the eyes, 22 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a rare gem - a book that titles itself Splendours of the Quran Calligraphy and Illumination and does what few books on the subject do - fewer writings and more illustrations. The pages reveal glorious colour examples of manuscripts from around the world - absolute compulsory purchase for anyone interested in Islamic Art. I loved the clever arrangement of the plates from right to left at the "back" of the book while the writing and explanations appear in western format from left to right.

This review is from: Splendours of Qur'an Calligraphy and Illuminations (Hardcover)
This book is impressive - not only in size but in content! It is big but means that the display pages are easy to see & detailed! The quality of print is of a high standard. The calligraphy examples are not just varied by country but also by time!
