Abstract

This study is about the garden design applied as cover decoration in Islamic bookbinding. The design has been one of the most favoured in the west since before the 18th century. There are two types of garden design in Islamic bookbinding; classical and secular. The garden design is inspired by Islamic teachings on Paradise. There are seven types of garden in Paradise prepared for believers. One of the ways to achieve Paradise is through learning. This has been manifest by Muslim bookbinders as an introduction to the manuscript, especially the Qur'an. The design is also ideal as an introduction to Islamic manuscripts in that it is connected to the illuminated pages within. Inter-cultural communication and relationship with non-Islamic regions inspired a more natural style of Islamic garden design, which had been applied in bookbinding decoration and resulted in the enrichment of Islamic arts and craft patterns.
