Title : Islamic Arts and Architecture

Description :
Designed and maintained by the non-profit organisation, Islamic Arts and Architecture Organization (IAAO), this website offers an introductory exploration into the developments of Islamic architecture, Arabic calligraphy, coins and the woven arts; each complimented by a host of details and images. Most entries typically describe the origins of the major forms and styles, the methods of construction or execution, as well as providing some limited detail about their religious or cultural significance and function where appropriate. For those wishing to delve deeper into these topics, the creators have developed a helpful bibliographic section containing approximately a dozen different citation lists focused on the four primary subject divisions of the site itself. This website may be most useful to students and the general public.
