THE ART OF THE ISLAMIC TILE

Quite simply, this is the finest book on Islamic tiles we have ever seen! It covers every type and style from the 9th century lustre tiles of Samarra to the Qajar tiles of modern Iran, not forgetting Iznik, Moorish, Indian, and Zellij tiles on the way. This is not just a history of Islamic tiles, but also a technical guide too, describing the many methods used to create such beautiful tiles. It is also a fabulous pictorial record of the rich heritage of Islamic tile and tile mosaic, individually and en masse in architecture. RECOMMENDED!
