"A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO ISLAMIC MONUMENTS IN MOROCCO"
Richard Parker, (Baraka Press, Charlottesville, Virginia, US).
Exactly what it claims to be - very helpful and well informed, with introductory sections on architectural forms and motifs, and craft traditions. Available at the American Bookstore in Rabat.
"FES: CITY OF ISLAM"
Titus Burckhardt, (Islamic Texts Society, UK);
Moorish Culture in Spain. (o/p). Burckhardt's Spain is a superb study of architecture, history, Islamic city-design and the mystical significance of its art - and as such it's entirely relevant to medieval Morocco. Fes is worth dipping into, if only for the photos, as the conceptual approach and respect for tradition can be a bit hard going.
"LIVING IN MOROCCO"
Lisl and Landt Dennis, (Thames & Hudson, UK/US).
Fabulous picture studies of Moroccan craft and domestic design, both traditional and modern. Matisse in Morocco. (Thames & Hudson, UK/US). A gorgeous book of the paintings and drawings from the artist's stay in 1912-13.
David Talbot Rice, (Thames & Hudson, UK/US).
Clear, interesting and well-illustrated survey - though only two chapters directly concern Morocco.
Michael Brett, (Orbis, o/p).
A fine illustrated survey of the Moorish Empire, well thought out and with an understanding text.
"TRADITIONAL ISLAMIC CRAFT IN MOROCCAN ARCHITECTURE"
Andre Paccard, (Éditions Atelier, France, 2 vols).
French coffee-table tome beyond all possible rival. The text is poor, but it is massively illustrated and - uniquely - includes photographs of Moroccan Royal Palaces currently in use."
COSTUMES OF MOROCCO"
Jean Besanceon, (KPI, UK).
Lavish prints, drawn in the 1930s and 1940s when they were still current. Most are now museum pieces.
"THE ART OF MOROCCAN CERAMICS"
Salma Damluji, Zillij: (Garnet, UK).
An expensive but beautifully illustrated study. In addition, a number of large, glossy books on Moroccan jewellery, gardens, paintings, manuscripts, carpets, buildings, etc, usually with French texts, are to be found in most of the larger bookshops in Morocco.
