Art and Islamic Architecture Summary
From the first thousand years of Islam, since the first revelations to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to the great Islamic empires of the eighteenth century, Islamic civilisation flourished, it fostered the development of a distinctive culture with its own unique artistic language that is reflected in art and architecture throughout the Muslim world.
Surface patterns on works of art created in the Islamic world have been prized for centuries for their beauty, refinement, harmony, intricacy, and complexity. The four basic components of Islamic ornament are calligraphy, vegetal patterns, geometric patterns, and figural representation.
Geometric motifs were popular with Islamic artists and designers in all parts of the world, for decorating almost every surface, whether walls or floors, pots or lamps, book covers or textiles. Islamic artists combined geometry with existing local traditions, creating a new and distinctive Islamic art that expressed the logic and order of the universe.
This work presents the unique art designed and developed by this culture over it’s history.

Before I read Art and Islamic Architecture, I had read some reviews which had me wondering if this one would be something I'd like, reviews from people whose opinions I trust. It's True, so Art and Islamic Architecture stayed on my "TBR Someday".
