Books on visual analysis are always welcome, especially when they promise and provide systematic methods to interpret, categorise and understand imagery in its many forms. Also desirable in this most modern phase of globalisation is an approach which addresses the transmission of codes and idioms from one region to another and from one cultural context to another in its historical, cultural and religious context, interrogating this in relation to notions of more indigenous invention of pattern and symbol. This book seeks to do all those things and does this from the point of view primarily of educating undergraduate students, although the stated audience for this book is somewhat broader than this.
