It is also, as importantly, an investigation into the relationship of zillij designs to ceramics, which present the designs on a new scale and with a new function.Zillij: The Art of Moroccan Ceramics is essential to the library of all those interested, either professionally or otherwise, in architecture, design, ceramics, Islamic and decorative arts.

  • This is a gorgeous book with extremely useful and well-researched information. The historical background on the ceramic and tiles techniques was of great value. I'm torn between putting it with my coffee table books for guests to peruse or with my research collection!
