Book Description The American University in Cairo Press, Egypt, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This work presents a series of pen and ink sketches of historic Cairene architecture, made by a single artist over a period of ten years. The accompanying text presents the monuments as part of a larger cultural, social and historical continuum, placing the buildings in human perspective. In Cairo, the reflection of human drama in architecture is particularly apparent; this book highlights such drama through character sketches of the rivalries, family relationships, intrigues and alliances between the patrons and builders of the medieval city. Cross-references to other sketches in the book draw the captions together into a narrative that reflects the intricate relationships between the buildings, their founders, and their neighbourhoods. The book is designed to enhance the enjoyment of the involved traveller who strives to make the encounter with another culture more meaningful and shift their perspective from the exotic to the familiar.
