About the Book
This groundbreaking book is the product of more than a decade of careful study in an effort to preserve the ancient henna traditions of Morocco. Moor offers a wealth of historical and cultural information about henna in Morocco—a distinctly women’s art form that struggles to maintain its identity in a rapidly changing world. Moor contains over 100 pages of meticulously cataloged Moroccan henna patterns—both traditional and original. Learn the origins and meanings of the Moroccan designs you love, how to create effective Moroccan designs of your own, and how Moroccans incorporate henna into their lives. Fall in love with Moroccan henna—for the first time or all over again.
Specs: Coming in at just under 200 pages, Moor contains 43 pages of text (covering Moroccan history, culture, henna as well as a comprehensive design manual), 22 full pages of photos as well as other photos throughout the book, and 100 pages of historical and original designs.
