The Friends of God-Sufi Saints in Islam: Popular Poster Art from Pakistan

Jurgen Wasim Frembgen

The first monograph on Sufi Poster Art takes the reader into a world of imagination full of emotion and inspiration. Modern poster-prints depicting "The Friends of God" and their shrines are a vivid medium of piety and devotion. They belong to the Sufi tradition of Pakistan, the heartland of Islamic mysticism in the eastern Muslim world, where this "religion of love" is especially distinctive and alive in its popular manifestations.
