Item description for Inside Africa North & East by Angelika Taschen Frederic Couderc...

Plunge into Africa: North and East We?ve searched far and wide, through Africa's deserts and jungles, cities and wildlife reserves, islands and mountains, to uncover the continent's most inspirational dwellings; our goal was to find the kind of interiors that defy description, and we think the results will definitely leave you speechless. Nestled within these pages you?ll find lush modern homes mingling with mud huts, funky artists? studios, elegant lodges, minimalist houses, ornate traditional homes, townships and much more?all lovingly built and decorated with sensitivity, creativity, craftsmanship, individuality, and sensuality. Inside Africa captures the beauty and diversity of African living. Beautifully bound with an African tribal motif cloth cover Highlights include: ? Italian sisters Carla and Franka Sozzani's fairy-tale palace in the Medina of Marrakech ? shoe designer Christian Louboutin's modest-yet-elegant Cairo home ? a lodge in Tanzania whose interior columns are formed by the trees around which it was built ? multi-level terracotta Troglodyte dwellings in Tunisia ? opulent mosaics, breathtaking courtyards and rooftop lounges in Marrakech Countries featured: Botswana, Egypt, Kenya, Mauritius, Morocco, R?union, Seychelles, Tanzania, and Tunisia The photographer: Deidi von Schaewen, who has lived in Paris for thirty years, is a contributor to a range of international periodicals and a film-maker, and has published numerous books. Her publications with TASCHEN include Indian Interiors, Fantasy Worlds, and Gardens of Provence. For Inside Africa, she made fifteen journeys in the space of four years, visiting twenty African countries. The editor: Angelika Taschen studied arthistory and German literature in Heidelberg, gaining her doctorate in 1986. Working for TASCHEN since 1987, she has published numerous titles on the themes of architecture, photography, design, and contemporary art. The authors: After ten years in fashion as a stylist, Laurence Dougier discovered the world of architecture and decoration in South Africa, where she lived for three years. Returning to Paris, she became a journalist and stylist, freelancing for magazines such as A&D, Elle d?coration, and C?t? Sud. After 10 years as reporter around the world for French press, Fr?d?ric Couderc worked for the French television station Canal +. Specialized in Africa, he recently published his first novel, Prince Ebene, the story of a black prince in the court of Louis XIV. He has also contributed to Elle and Elle d?coration magazines.

Reviews - What do customers think about Inside Africa North & East?

Reminded me of Africa  Jan 28, 2008
Having visited South Africa, I have become interested in all things African. This book covers a lot of regions in pictures, and I am pleased with its presence on my coffee table. It makes me want to see even more of Africa.
Extremely beautiful, interesting book (and series).  Jun 4, 2007
This book and the companion North and East volume are extraordinarily beautiful and offer images of a rich array of African homes -- traditional, contemporary and intermingled. The photography is excellent and offers images of architecture, art, landscapes and lives. Highly recommended.
