From 909 to 1171, the Fatimid dynasty presided over a brilliant flowering of art and architecture in North Africa. Because the Fatimids were Ismaili Shias, because they ruled at the westernmost edge of the Islamic world, and because their art encompassed figurative imagery, their extraordinary legacy has seldom received its due. With more than 160 illustrations, many in colour, this authoritative survey makes accessible the full richness and subtlety of the ceramics, textiles, ivory and woodcarving of this overlooked tradition.
