Arabic manuscript authority, Colin F. Baker explores the central place of the Qur'an in Islamic Society and looks at the manuscripts as physical objects, including the celebrated calligraphy and the masterful artists who developed it. Numerous full-colour images display the breadth of illumination styles and production materials used. Qur'an Manuscripts is a concise and readable overview of the long history of these manuscripts from across the wide Islamic world, from the eighth to the end of the nineteenth centuries, and from Spain to Southeast Asia.
