Glass from Islamic Lands

Stefano Carboni, Author, Nasser Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Sabah, Preface by Thames & Hudson $65 (416p) ISBN 978-0-500-97606-7
Part of the al-Sabah Islamic art collection at the Kuwait National Museum, the hundreds of pieces in Glass from Islamic Lands date from the sixth to the 19th century, originated primarily in the Middle East and Asia and had been exported all over the world before the al-Sabah family assembled them. Stefano Carboni, associate curator at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, has arranged the work chronologically, with 345 color and b&w photographs of lovely glasswork. This catalogue is one of the few U.S. publications devoted to glass from Islamic countries. ( May 28)
