Thames & Hudson, London - ISBN:0500270716. softcover, 8¼" x 10¼. Title page has been removed. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, pocket etc. Book in GOOD condition. This book, with detailed analytical drawings, explores & demonstrates the thesis that, whereas in medieval Christian art the polarisation of such forms and patterns was confined to the background against which sacred image was placed, the geometrical patterns of Islamic art reveal to the eye of the sensitive and understanding onlooker the intrinsic cosmological laws affecting all Creation, the primary function being to lead the mind from the literal and mundane world towards the underlying reality.
