About this title

Synopsis:

Among many other treasures, the Oriental Department of the Wellcome Library houses a small, but important, collection of Islamic calligraphy. Unlike many modern catalogues on Islamic calligraphy, which primarily comprises of illustrations and their physical description, this volume includes full details of each item described. The diversity of topics, languages and styles of calligraphy represented in the Wellcome collection, together with the contributions by various scholars, will make this volume an important reference on Islamic calligraphy for many years to come. Wellcome Collection, opening in summer 2007, is a major new public venue, located opposite London's Euston station. Part gallery, part museum, an extraordinary library, café and more, Wellcome Collection will take a thoughtful and experimental look at medicine, life & art. Over 1500 exhibits spanning six centuries, plus extensive collections in the library, portray the development in our understanding of wellbeing and human identity.
