Based on decades of research and expertise, and written by tutors at The Prince's School of Traditional Arts, one of the world's leading schools for the study of the traditional crafts of the East and West, this book provides unparalleled access to a glorious range of techniques, methods, materials and skills. The first chapter explores the fundamental principles of Islamic arts and crafts: geometry, islimi and calligraphy. The second introduces widely used materials and tools, while the third provides illustrated step-by-step guides to the crafting of artefacts and artworks, including Kufic calligraphy, plaster carving, miniature painting, parquetry, ceramics, mosaics and glassblowing. The history and significance of the techniques and materials used are also explained, accompanied by numerous illustrations of masterworks found throughout the Islamic world.
