Abstract

This paper reviews a recent study concerned with Islamic architectural drawings (Gülru Necipoğlu, The Topkapi scroll, Santa Monica, 1995). It deals in detail with two- and three-dimensional ornament in Islam in the context of a discussion of the aesthetic implications of patterns and forms employed in Islamic architecture.
