Islamic Art Spot: Arts of the Book...


How were books made in the past? Here's a video describing Islamic book-making and illustration - Arts of the Book and Miniature Painting. It's one of the free online resources available through the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf.

The Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities, conducted in cooperation with the American Library Association. Support was provided by a grant from Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additional support for the arts and media components was provided by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
