A Living Islamic City: Fez and Its Preservation
Jane Casewit (Translation)
Paperback, 104 pages
The Moroccan city of Fez is a precious jewel of Islamic civilization. For over 40 years Titus Burckhardt helped to document its artistic and architectural heritage. These newly translated lectures, delivered when Burckhardt was living and working there, explore how it can be authentically preserved and updated. Aided by his photographs and sketches, Burckhardt conveys what it means to be a living Islamic city.
