Description - Islamic Designs by Diane Victoria Horn

Islamic designs possess a highly definite style, an entire repertory of motifs and a distinct character, associated with an idea and a faith. The adoption of designs from all races of man served as a basic form of ornament in art and exercised a tremendously unifying effect. In this book the author has illustrated designs found on glass, metal, wood and clay objects, along with designs from carpets, manuscripts and architectural elements. The appeal of these extraordinary Islamic designs is timeless; they contain a seemingly endless variety of patterns created with calligraphy, geometry, arabesques and figurative motifs. Each design reflects the unerring sense of aesthetics characteristic of Islamic art. Included also is an informative introduction by the author.
