Originally published by Thames and Hudson (London) in 1976. The author is affiliated with the Prince of Wales Institute of Architecture in England, and is an expert on Islamic art. This provocative study explores the geometrical patterns of Islamic art, showing how their configuration intends to reveal intrinsic cosmological laws and to guide the mind from the mundane world of appearances to the underlying spiritual reality. This work is a rich source of information and inspiration for those interested in sacred art as well as artists and designers curious about the sophisticated and subtle underpinnings of Islamic pattern.
