The Metropolitan Museum of Art: wonderful illustrated timeline
Muslim Journey's Art Spots
From Amazon: "This work highlights the characteristics of Islamic Art and focuses on the differences between the various arts of the Islamic lands. Dividing the era into three periods (600-900, 900-1500, and 1500-1800) the artistic development is set within historical context. In each period the book describes developments in architecture, the arts of the book, the loom and the fire - metalwork, ceramics and glassware."
The Qu'ran details that the Hajj is the annual spiritual pilgrimage to Mecca each Muslim must take. According to Amazon: "This striking little book not only takes the reader on a journey, but celebrates the skill and creativity of artists, craftspeople, and the pilgrims themselves who have responded to the call of Hajj over the centuries."
Let’s Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, a reading and discussion series, has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in cooperation with the American Library Association.
