Reprint. Originally published: Kèoln: Kèonemann, 2004.

This book follows the historical development of the Islamic dynasties and regions, showing the variety of their forms of artistic expression from the beginning until today.

From decorative elements of buildings to calligraphy and the embellishment of everyday objects, ornamentation, that most characterise Islamic art form, displayed in an extraordinary rich range of ways.

The contributions of important scholars bring to life before our very eyes this culture, which belongs next to Greek and Roman antiquity as one of the pillars of our modern society.
