Reviews - What do customers think about Egypt Style (Icons)?
Stylish maybe, but not very Egyptian Jul 24, 2005
Most of the photos here are from only a small number of locations -- mostly tourist hotels or homes owned by foreigners or wealthy Arabs. Because of this, the style depicted isn't terribly Egyptian, but sort of a quasi-orientalist fantasy. Virtually all of the interiors in this book could be from Morocco, or Los Angeles for that matter. Still, it's well-produced, inexpensive, and worth a look if you're more interested in style and less in authenticity.
