Patterns from Islamic architecture and art are a rich and wonderful source for those wanting to explore the boundaries of art and mathematics. The patterns in this book are from some of the world’s great mosques, as well as mosaics, doors and windows from the Muslim world. Each is explored and demonstrated so that they can be used in your own designs. They are perfect follow up activities for trips to these magnificent places.
Robert Field has travelled extensively and has taken his camera and a keen eye with him wherever he has gone. Many people will be both surprised and delighted by the sheer number and variety of interesting patterns that he has discovered. This is one of a series of Geometric Patterns books that will appeal both to those who have a particular interest in the topic covered but also to those who are looking for a rich resource of pattern designs.
