This includes its many French, Mediterranean and creative influences. In recent years, the country even inspired fashion collections from designers like Todd Snyder.
Fittingly, Assouline notes that the nation has “been an endless source of inspiration for artists and aesthetes alike” since a nineteenth-century journey to the country by French artist Eugène Delacroix.
The 312-page hardcover volume includes an impressive 200 illustrations exploring the vibrant color and culture that give the country its nickname as the “Kingdom of Light.”
Assouline’s other books explore the destinations and world of luxury watchmaking. This latest book promises to be a similar, luxurious addition to any coffee-table or bookshelf.
Oliver Pilcher’s exclusive photography also covers a dozen other cities.
Assouline also notes that the “there is something that people come to Morocco to find, even if they are never able to take all of it away with them: A country, a kingdom, a dynamic, an idea—or perhaps even a question.”
