Summary
This volume features 150 works from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's rich holdings of Islamic art. The objects--including pottery, enameled and gilded glass, inlaid metalwork, carved ornamental stone and wood, woven textiles, and manuscripts--span the area from southern Spain to northern India, and range in date from the 7th century to the modern era. Among the book's essays is an illustrated narration of the museum's recently conserved landmark acquisition, a Damascus Room, published here for the first time
