From the palaces of Fez to the roads of Marrakesh, from the trading posts of Essaouira to the Kasbahs of the south, this book seeks out the most singular living spaces in Morocco, a country blessed with one of the richest architectural heritages in North Africa. Corinne Verner explores the archetypes of the Moroccan built environment in over 200 glorious color photographs, interspersed with numerous essays exploring a number of related topics, from the decorative arts of Morocco and the concept of the garden as metaphors for paradise to contemporary fashions and developments.
