Required Reading: Morocco Modern by Herbert Ypma

Issue 35 · Marrakesh Color · September 3, 2010

New in paperback from Thames & Hudson: Morocco Modern, by Herbert Ypma, author of the Hip Hotels and the World Design series. Ypma traces the origins of the great artisan traditions of Morocco and looks at the way contemporary designers continue to use these techniques. He also focuses on the work of Tunisian-born, Paris-educated Charles Boccara, described by the London Times as "Morocco's silver-haired wild child," whose designs reinterpret these influences to create work that is strikingly modern. Morocco Modern is $15.56 at Amazon.
