The catalogue 'The Arabesque: An Introduction's is published in conjunction with the launching of the Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic World and The Arabesque Exhibition at The British Museum, London, United Kingdom. The Arabesque Exhibition stage in collaboration with the British Museum will be on display from October 2018 until September 2019.

Ornamentation in the art and architecture of the Islamic world has attracted researchers as well as illuminators for Centuries. Yet few specialist scholars have studied in depth the subject of the stylised plant motifs known as arabesque. In this publication, The Arabesque: An Introduction, the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (IAMM) seeks to draw greater attention to the importance of vegetal ornament, which has spread over the Islamic world for well over a thousand years, and attempts to trace its development, at the same time revealing aspects of its meaning and symbolism in the Islamic decorative repertoire.
