A handbook of materials and art technology used in early Islamic manuscripts, for artists and art lovers alike.

126 abundantly illustrated pages, tightly packed with art materials, terminology, recipes and other art technology from the Abbasid period, also known as the Golden Age of Islam. Most of this contents has never been seen before in a Western language, and was never dealt with by a practicing artist in any language since the original treatises were written in the medieval period. All the recipes included, save for a small handful, were first road-tested in my kitchen. Whether you have a general interest in art history or want to prepare and use these materials, this book has you covered. The format is A5, wire-bound to be totally practical to use in the studio.
