You would not expect the beautiful, color, and large-sized plates of Islamic art found in this slim book. The calligraphy is enlarged, symbols are explained. You will not be disappointed with this book if you want it as a coffee-table book or as a book for research into the details of Islamic art. Great textbook for a class on the introduction to Islamic art.

I had the chance to read this book last week, its nice reading about part of the Islamic Art, still I have few comments about this book that I would like to share with other people interested in this area:

1. Most of the photos in the book for few art production and artifices which doesn't represent the Islamic art in comprehensive manner, and it focuses on specific area of the Isalmic world and even specific era

2. When talking about Islamic geometry the reader get the feeling that this is just another decorative tool, without mentioning any thing about the Islamic sacred geometry, and

3. The reader feels that the book examples are not comprehensive and focuses on central Asia, Persian and Maghoul arts, even though it mentions middle east, north Africa and Andalusia (Spain) but without any examples or photos

4. The book didn't talk about the Islamic Architecture Art at all (maybe this is out of the book scope)

5. The beginning of the book the author talked about wars, struggles and chaos in the Islamic world, the reader feels that the past 1400 years of the Islamic nation history was all in chaos, yes I agree there were wars and times of instability still history talks about long time for peace (at least internally within the Islamic state) otherwise why do we find all this heritage of art and culture within the Islamic history

6. When talking about human paintings, the book talked about contradiction in Prophet Mohammad Sayings (Hadeeth) about this issue, I don't believe that this is accurate and depends on the accuracy about the Prophet Sayings the author refers to, the author didn't document these sayings so we need first to get the sayings, validate all and ensure it's the prophet sayings in addition to find the correct interpretation of all.

7. Ali is not the founder of Shi'a, this political (or religion) path appeared after Ali death

8. The book talked about the dome of Rock, I believe it will be good addition if photos for the Dome are added to the book

9. Islam don't see itself as about its superior of Christianity and value the holy family

10. The christen existence was not only due to crusades, mainly it was because Islam didn't mind living together with Christianity

11. Astrology is forbidden in Islam so even if it exists in some art work it shouldn't be considered as Islamic art (and this returns us to the definition of Islam and Muslims) not all production of Muslims is related to Islam some are the results of their previous history and heritage before Islam, so its more related to other cultures than to Islam

12. Kalila and Dimnah is not an Arabic or Islamic production its Indian book translated to Persian and then to Arabic

13. Sura at the Qur'an is not a chapter since Qur'an is divided into 30 Chapters and includes 114 Sura some chapters contains more than one Sura and some times one long Sura takes several chapters

For such a short book, the illustrations are excellent. This is an excellent read--as far as it goes. Alas, that it not far. I found it heavy on ceramics and related, but there is no detail on carpets or textiles, both important forms of the arts in Islamic traditions. That may reflect what's in the museum collection.
