4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Interesting 13 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Anyone interested in Islamic art must read this book. And even if you are new to the subject, or are curious it is still very interesting. Bierman writes very clearly and provides many examples to support her arguments. Plus, most people are accustomed to figural art and knowing more about the beauty of non-figurative art is wonderful. The book has made me want to discover more about Islamic Art, especially from Cairo.
