One of the most concise books about Islamic architecture in the world,
This review is from: Islam: Art and Architecture (Hardcover)
I have been traveling the Islamic world for years, perusing all the remnants of empires long gone, this book is usually my first stop in researching different locations and countries. it has an amazing collection of photographs and detailed history for each region.
I would highly recommend this book for every person who is interested in the Islamic world and its history.
in my opinion the only downside is its size. its a huge book!
