Islamic patterns are not just beautiful accidents …

The practitioners of this craft use traditional methods of measurement to create dazzling geometric compositions, most based on the repetition of a single pattern. The results are magnificent in their beauty and awe-inspiring in their execution.

Now, with the aid of this book, everyone can learn how to master this ancient art and create their own intricate patterns or re-create classic examples. All one needs is a pencil, a ruler, a compass – and a steady hand.

Technical tips demonstrate the basics:  how to draw a square, hexagon or pentagon. This is followed by some of the best examples of geometric patterns from around the world, arranged into levels of complexity, with careful, step-by-step instructions.
