A useful introduction to a huge subject.,
This review is from: Islamic Art in Detail (Hardcover)
I bought this book as an introduction to an introduction. I had just started the OUDCE course 'Islamic Art and Architecture'. This in itself was an introduction, over 10 weeks, online. The relatively small book, here reviewed, served the purpose very well, enabling me to tackle the very large book used in the course!. Since then many friends have borrowed it. It is written by an expert and illustrated with pictures of items at the British Museum mainly.
I hope more people will be inspired by this book.
