    One thought on “Islamic Arts (Phaidon Art & Ideas)”

    1. This book kicked off my love of history of art and I've never looked back - but really I should credit the wonderful collection at the V&A that inspired me to buy the book. The book is wonderfully illustrated, but is actually quite dry to read.

    2. Despite ongoing conventions, Islamic Art (an extremely wide term, used here for convenience and coherence) flourished beyond the merely decorative or doctrinal. This sumptuous Phaidon edition is a good entrée to the flowers of the various Muslim empires in history.

    3. This compact, beautifully-illustrated volume provides a wonderful introduction to the art, architecture and material culture of the Islamic world.
