5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource book for interior designers., 10 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Morocco Modern (World Design) (Paperback)
The colours, shapes and textures of Morocco are sumptously displayed in this book. As an interior designer, I found the book both inspirational and stunningly useful. The close-up detailing of "mouchearabieh screens"; plasterwork, tiling, weaving, zeligs, doorframes, furniture, flowers, etc show things that other books on Morocco just hint at - and force you to squint at! If you need to create a Moroccan interior FAST, and don't have the time to go to Morocco, Ypma's book is a lifesaver. You can even mix the paint colours using the pictures as reference. Cheers Herbert! The mint tea's on me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, I want to go to Morocco..., 10 Sep 1997
By A Customer
The richness of the colors, the incredible patterns for the tiles, the bountiful King's Palmeraie... I was just inspired. Immensily superior to Moroccan Interiors, better photos and no comparison in terms of the text

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent photographs that cannot fail to inspire., 22 Nov 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Morocco Modern (World Design) (Paperback)
As an A4 sized paperback this book is neither cumbersome to carry around or expensive to purchase. The photographs can almost draw you into the picture, making you wish that you were really there! For the armchair traveller, interior designer or amateur enthusiast, the vivid vibrancy of the rich colours of this country are bought to life with photographs that simply cannot fail to inspire.

5.0 out of 5 stars A feast for the eyes!, 16 Jun 2010
A small book (160 pages) yet thorough in its presentation of all aspects of Moroccan Design and Traditional Arts. Highly informative and inspirational photography that includes a myriad of exquisite close up pictures immerses the reader in the tranquil world of Morocco; moreover, one is presented within this new edition by Thames and Hudson, the spirit and soul of the people of Morocco, of its artisans. It's all to be found in the colours, the patiently carved designs, and in its mesmerising earthyness. This book is a door into the magic of Morocco; prepare to be seduced. A splendid book and what a bargain price! More books like this please Thames and Hudson.
