Muslim reverence for the Qur'an as the Word of God has manifested itself in various artistic forms throughout history and up to the present day. This innovative collection of essays explores creative expressions of the Qur'an in a wide range of media. Contributors include museum curators and leading academics in art and architectural history, palaeography and material anthropology, and their studies span four continents and cover topics from medieval coins and early illuminated copies of the Qur'an to contemporary painting. They offer a multidisciplinary approach to the questions of how, why and in what contexts the Qur'an has inspired Muslim artists and craftspeople to adorn the spaces they inhabit and the objects they cherish with its verses.

About the Author:

Dr. Fahmida Suleman is Research Associate and Qur'anic Studies Project Coordinator at The Institute of Ismaili Studies in London.

Review:

"Word of God, Art of Man makes a significant contribution to the study of the visual manifestations of the Qur'an in Islamic culture from its earliest times to the present. Meticulously editied and lavishly illustrated, the book is most impressive for the diverse media and geographical range represented in the individual contributions...It seems likely that this volume will become a benchmark for future publications on the arts of the Qur'an" --Professor Marcus C. Milwright, The Journal of Islamic Studies 01/01/09

"This work is destined to be widely used in view of its in-depth coverage of the relevant material." --Abdur Raheem Kidwai The Muslim World Book Review 20/11/2008
