For thousands of years and in many cultures people have been inspired by mosaics. Whether the stylistically reduced pebble mosaics of the Greeks or the golden splendor of the Byzantine churches--their stylistic diversity is just as great as the diversity of the materials used. With more than 200 illustrations, this volume shows the impressive range of this art form.
