... a major contribution to the world of science and of particular value to the documention of the culture of Islam. N Gedal ... a masterly account of the way in which art and science are combined into aesthetic beauty by the Islamic geometric designs and motifs which decorate much of the Eastern World. M Evans ... This book will allow readers to travel through time and space, from ancient ornaments to the most modern computer graphics patterns. C. Pickover Ever since the discovery of the existence of seventeen space groups in two dimensions by Fedorov in 1891, it has been speculated that all seventeen could be found in Islamic art. But it is in this book that this remarkable fact is for the first time detailed and analysed, with beautiful illustrations. Rarely is there such a thought-provoking blend of esthetics and geometry with abstraction. C N Yang Geometrical form. Here, mathematics combines with art and exhibits clearly its aesthetic appeal Islamic patterns provide a marvellous illustration of symmetry and Drs. Abas and Salman perform a useful service by taking this as their theme and blending it with ideas on computer graphics. Foreword by Michael Atiyah Abas and Salman have assembled a fascinating collection that combines art, history, culture, science, mathematics and philosophy. Their examples range from a 12th-century minaret in Uzbekistan via the Alhambra in Granada to modern computer graphics of Koranic calligraphy on dodecahedrons and tori. They conclude by speculating on the prospect of creating Islamic patterns in virtual reality, where 'a seeker after unity in science and art would be able to submerge himself or herself in exquisite Alhambras of the mind'.Judging by the evidence presented here, it would be an unforgettable experience.

The main focus of this unique book is an in-depth examination of the polygonal technique; the primary method used by master artists of the past in creating Islamic geometric patterns. The author details the design methodology responsible for this all-but-lost art form and presents evidence for its use from the historical record, both of which are vital contributions to the understanding of this ornamental tradition. Additionally, the author examines the historical development of Islamic geometric patterns, the significance of geometric design within the broader context of Islamic ornament as a whole, the formative role that geometry plays throughout the Islamic ornamental arts (including calligraphy, the floral idiom, dome decoration, geometric patterns, and more), and the underexamined question of pattern classification. Featuring over 600 beautiful color images, Islamic Geometric Patterns: Their Historical Development and Traditional Methods of Con struction is a valuable addition to the literature of Islamic art, architecture and geometric patterns. This book is ideal for students and scholars of geometry, the history of mathematics, and the history of Islamic art, architecture, and culture. In addition, artists, designers, craftspeople, and architects will all find this book an exceptionally informative and useful asset in their fields. Jay Bonner is an architectural ornamentalist and unaffiliated scholar of Islamic geometric design. He received his MDes from the Royal College of Art in London (1983). He has contributed ornamental designs for many international architectural projects, including the expansion of both the al-Masjid al-Haram (Grand Mosque) in Mecca, and the al-Masjid an Nawabi (Prophet’s Mosque) in Medina, as well the Tomb of Sheikh Hujwiri in Lahore, and the Ismaili Centre in London – to name but a few. He is committed to the revitalization of Islamic geometric design through the teaching of traditional methodological practices. To this end, in addition to publishing, Jay Bonner has lectured and taught design seminars at many universities and conferences in North America, Europe, North Africa and Asia.

Learn how to draw seven geometric star patterns from around the Islamic world, using only a pencil, straight edge, and a pair of compasses. Patterns featured are from Baghdad, Fes, Cairo, Konya, Delhi and Damascus. Suitable for ages 9 and up. No calculations are necessary. The least complicated way of learning Islamic geometric design is to understand and use the same techniques that craftsmen in the Islamic world have used for centuries. These craftsmen were not mathematicians; they knew how to make things with their hands but they did not use measurements or calculate angles to make their compositions. Their tools were a pair of compasses, a ruler and a pencil. By drawing lines, circles and arcs they were able to make all their patterns and compositions. This is also how you will be able to draw these patterns.This book will teach you how to draw seven different star patterns. All the patterns in this book can be made without calculations and measurements. They can be made by hand or on a computer. All you need to be able to do is draw circles and lines. The tools you need if you are drawing by hand are a pair of compasses, a ruler and pencils. Each pattern is constructed in a step-by-step process.

The original inspiration for this book came from visits to the buildings of Moorish Spain, in particular those of Grenada, Cordoba and Seville. This striking introduction to Islamic design was followed by journeys to the traditional sites of the Middle East and North Africa and then finally to the newer mosques of Britain.Everywhere there was a wealth of pattern and inventiveness to marvel at. The sense of wonder increases still further when, on starting to draw the patterns, the simplicity of the grids from which they were developed is discovered.This book, with its combination of drawings and photographs will stimulate a thorough investigation and interest in the wonderful geometric patterns and buildings of Islam.

Patterns Of Stylistic Changes In Islamic Architecture

Drawing upon a lifetime's knowledge, Patterns of Stylistic Change in Islamic Architecture presents Michael Meinecke's unique view of the evolution and development of Islamic architecture. Departing from conventional method which groups buildings and monuments according to dynasties and defines national characteristics based on the ethnic origins of Arabic, Persian, or Turkish patrons, Meinecke emphasizes the similarities which resulted from interrelations among neighboring or far-away areas. He argues that transformations in the development of Islamic architecture can be explained by the movements of skilled craftsmen who traveled extensively in their search for challenging work, allowing for their influence to be felt across a broad region. Meinecke's unique approach to Islamic architecture will no doubt inspire others to emulate his approach in studying other regions or areas. Few, however, will be able to attain the consummate mastery of the subject which enlivens these essays.
