latest addition II

Taschen were celebrating 25 years in the publishing business and this book came out with a special attempting price .. i simply couldn't resist, fell in love with the cover and from there the journey of Moroccan inspiration began - from every signal bit of detail to the amazingly designed and decorated (villa, hotel or resort).

you can find it at our kinokuniya - the dubai mall
