Gifts of Giving

On the day after Christmas, it is relevant to be talking about the joys of giving and receiving gifts. My best friend from high school, Linda Komaroff, has written Gifts of the Sultan: The Arts of Giving at the Islamic Courts, the catalog for an exhibit she curated that will open at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art June 5, 2011.

“The giving of gifts both delights the recipient and pleases the giver. Practiced in all societies, gift exchange has a history as long as humanity,” writes Komaroff, who is curator of Islamic Art at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
