Review:

"It is superbly illustrated with color photographs not only of the standard, well-known works, but also of a large number of lesser-known icons, many from the Arab world. Excellent photographs of wall paintings, mosaics, and manuscript illuminations are also included." Religious Studies Review "This book is a treasure far beyond its weight in gold."
