This richly illustrated volume leads the reader through a journey of about six centuries developing the fine arts of calligraphy in the Islamic world. Much has been written about the early stages of the development of Arabic writing and the position of calligraphy as an art form within Islamic civilization. This catalog tries to follow this story in the golden age of Islamic calligraphy and its appreciation and patronage as the main form of artistic expression from Islamic Spain to China.
