Описание: Surface decoration has always played a fundamental role in Islamic architecture. As human representation is forbidden in Islamic religious monuments, designers employed mosaics, stucco, brickwork and ceramics, and the vigorous use of brilliant colour to reach unparalleled heights of expression. It is this ornamental dimension of Islamic architecture that is explored in this magnificent volume. Rather than limiting itself to an exclusively historical or chronological perspective, Ornament and Decoration in Islamic Architecture presents four successive approaches to its subject. The first part offers an overview of Islamic architecture, discussing the great diversity it contains. Dealing exclusively with techniques, the second part considers the materials most often used as well as the expertise of the builders and Muslim decorative artists, and the third part explores themes in Islamic ornamentation. Section four discusses aesthetics, and studies the relationship between the buildings - the structures or their architectonic components - and their ornamental coverings. Each of these topics is presented through a number of outstanding examples and then through comparable monuments from all over the Islamic world. For anyone in thrall to such great wonders as the Taj Mahal and the Alhambra, and for everyone interested in the world of Islam, this lavish publication will be

This book simplifies the process, using Oliver’s simple, straightforward but extremely stylish approach to color and light.

Описание: Ever versatile, wallpaper has the ability to give rough plaster walls a fresh, smooth start and take the rawness off the inside of new houses. It can also create 'instant' paint effects, allow us to experiment with deep layered background colour and even create an illusion of space and light. Currently undergoing a design revolution, wallpapers have never offered the home decorator so much potential. Available to suit all tastes and all budgets, formal pattern repeats have given way to informal, apparently random, motifs of natural forms in a palette of fresh, soft colours, and bold metallics which, at first glance, appear to be handpainted. The most recent papers also echo the latest trends in paint effects – from gilded finishes to suede textures.
