Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0991992865, Paperback)

A comprehensive guide to Toronto’s Aga Khan Museum that showcases its building, park, and collection of Islamic works of art.

The Aga Khan Museum Guide introduces this new Toronto museum’s vision, building, park, and Islamic works of art in an accessible form to the visitor and general public. It provides an overview of the historical, intellectual, and artistic wealth of the Museum’s exquisite collection, which includes extraordinary Qur’ans, ceramics, metalwork, scientific and musical instruments, luxury items, painted and illuminated manuscripts, and architectural fragments ranging from the 9th to 19th centuries.

Illustrated with more than 100 full-colour photographs and details of some of the institution’s most important artifacts and manuscripts, the Guide celebrates the Museum’s unique building, designed by renowned Japanese architect Fumihiko Maki, and showcases its splendid park, created by Lebanese-Serbian landscape architect Vladimir Djurovic.
