The Image of the Word.
Dodd, Erica Cruikshank and Shereen Khairallah.
The Image of the Word.
A lavishly illustrated two-volume set on the role of written text in Islam and the concept of God-as-word in Islam, as descended from - but distinct from - the Greek and Roman concept of divinity as Logos. The Image of the Word focuses particularly on text as architectural decoration, an extremely important aspect of Islamic building. Very good to fine condition, good to very good dust jackets (intact with minor damage, sunning to spine).
