The Splendour of Islamic Calligraphy

ISBN: 9780500016756

This is the definitive survey of Islamic calligraphy.Calligraphy is perhaps at its most brilliant in the Islamic world. Its use in sacred and official texts gave rise to a wonderful profusion of scripts, and a calligraphic tradition that has flourished for over a thousand years - not only in manuscript decoration but in architecture, ceramics and painting. The Splendour of Islamic Calligraphy, widely acclaimed on first publication as the most lavish and sumptuous study of its kind, provides a comprehensive and fascinating survey of the subject from its earliest origins to the present day.
