The sensual beauty of the islands of Zanzibar was for a long time a well-kept secret among the world's most discerning travellers, artists and epicures. For years the names of its serene beach retreats and fascinating townhouses were passed around between those in the know as THE places to come for relaxation, inspiration and a revival of the spirit. Zanzibar is now firmly established as one of the world's top upmarket holiday destinations, with a spicy mix of cultural and natural attractions that makes it irresistible to journalists, photographers and tourists alike. Everyday life in Zanzibar is a riot of colour, texture and light. Walking around Stone Town or strolling on the beach, the visitor's eye is constantly caught by fascinating details - a shady courtyard glimpsed through a window cut in a brass-studded door, or a Swahili proverb printed along the bottom of a lady's colourful Kanga. Zanzibar Style will focus on these details, celebrating the natural style of the island's inhabitants, their crafts, textiles and furniture, and examining the unique objets d'art hidden in the nooks and crannies of hotels and private houses. 'Zanzibar Style' will define and illustrate Zanzibar's unique look in a sumptuous full colour book, featuring photographs by Javed Jafferji.
