    One thought on “Moorish Style”

    1. Making my way through half a dozen books about Moorish art This is by far the most readable I particularly liked that it explained the European fascination in the 1800s with Moorish art Lots of nice pictures, and a great chapter that broke down a couple of common designs to show how they were constructed.
