Beautifully presented and bound in silk, this stunningly photographed celebration of Moroccan style is a rich sourcebook of design and inspiration. From coastal Tangier to Casablanca and Marrakech, through the Atlas Mountains and right to the edge of the Sahara, here are exquisite landscapes, magnificent architecture, intricate crafts, and a unique approach found nowhere else. Settlements and fortresses on the "Route of a Thousand Kasbahs" feature distinctive turrets and towers and carvings in the stone. The exquisite Caravanserai, a modern building by one of Morocco's best-known architects, showcases a sequence of corridors and rooms leading to a breathtaking garden and pool. Gorgeous mosaics and tiles appear everywhere, along with brilliant colors, opulent fabrics, and complex patterns. Whether traditional or contemporary, everything has a profound sensuousness of form and contrast of materials. From classic Berber designs and sparse, organic desert architecture to the Art Deco style from the days of the French Protectorate, each page reveals a different, amazing facet of Morocco.
