Synopsis: It is laid down in the Qur’an that at least once in their lives Muslims should undertake the annual spiritual pilgrimage—the Hajj—to the holy city of Mecca. There, within a sanctuary, lies the Ka’ba—a cube of black granite that is the literal center of a Muslim’s world and the compass point towards which daily prayers are made. 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. · Encompasses a striking array of objects and images, from the seventh to the 21st centuries. · Features illuminated manuscripts, wall paintings and photographs, calligraphy, textiles, scientific instruments, decorative tiles, maps, ceramics, metalwork, and powerful works by contemporary artists.

About the Author: Venetia Porter is Curator of Islamic and modern Middle Eastern art at the British Museum. She is the author of Islamic Tiles and the editor of Hajj: Journey to the Heart of Islam.
