"The superb beauty and bold clarity of Islamic patterns have inspired artists, architects and designers throughout the world. Using elaborate variations of simple geometric forms -- triangular and square grids -- the artists of Islam integrated mathematics with religion to create works of enduring loveliness that combine linear intensity with vivid color. 'Pattern in Islamic Art' is the most complete and thorough study published to date on the structure of these designs." -- DJ.
