"The west has long held a fascination with the art and culture of the North Africa and the Middle East. Covering a period from the late fifteenth century to the present day, Inspired by the east sheds a light on the complex cultural exchange between these civilisations. This richly illustrated book offers a new perspective on how Orientalism has influenced western artists, designers and thinkers." --
