Early Islamic Art and Architecture, Hardback Book

Early Islamic Art and Architecture Hardback

Edited by Jonathan M. Bloom

Part of the The Formation of the Classical Islamic World series

Description

This volume deals with the formative period of Islamic art (to c. 950), and the different approaches to studying it. Individual essays deal with architecture, ceramics, coins, textiles, and manuscripts, as well as with such broad questions as the supposed prohibition of images, and the relationships between sacred and secular art.

An introductory essay sets each work in context; it is complemented by a bibliography for further reading.
