The culture of the Muslim world has developed a very specific type of ornamental design, which is grounded in the religious demands of Islam.
The visual language of Islamic design employs a variety of intricate geometric patterns, floral elements and ornate calligraphy, all of which are used to decorate manuscripts, textiles, furniture, buildings, etc.
Persian Designs presents a diverse collection of designs, ranging from simple and elegant elements to complex and highly ornate interlocking patterns. The present book is a completely revised, enlarged and improved version of an earlier Agile Rabbit edition with the same title.
About The Pepin Press
The Pepin Press grew out of Pepin van Roojen's one-man graphic design and book production operation in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In 1990, the first book under the Pepin Press imprint was published: The History and Culture of Malaysia, published in Malay and English in co-operation with the National Museum in Kuala Lumpur. It was followed by many titles on Southeast Asian, Middle Eastern and Chinese architecture, decorative arts and cultural history. In 1994, after some eight years in Asia, Pepin relocated back to his home town, Amsterdam. However, the link with the Far East was never severed: most of our production takes place in Asia and we have a logistic hub in Singapore.
