Jonathan Bloom and Sheila Blair are among the world's leading experts in their field. A husband-and-wife team of scholars, they hold the Calderwood University Professorship in Islamic and Asian Art at Boston College. They are joint authors of The Art and Architecture of Islam: 1250-1800.

Review:

"Will revive the wanderlust, even of those who have "been everywhere, seen everything"."-New York Times Book Review "This is a wonderful new contribution, it reflects current scholarship in a easy to read way and demystifies Islamic art."-Catherine Asher, Department of Art History, University of Minnesota "Islamic Arts is a visual as well as an intellectual treat, a successful collaboration of the best contemporary authors and the best contemporary design."-Walter B Denny, Department of Art History, University of Massachusetts at Amherst On the Art & Ideas series "Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing."-Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London "The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods... I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools."-Joachim Pissarro, Yale University "Phaidon's series may prove to be the pick of the crop. It boasts expert but undogmatic texts and a wealth of illustrations."-The Sunday Telegraph
