Damascus by Tim Beddow
Book DescriptionDamascus has enjoyed a long history of immense artistic achievement. Alongside some of Islams most magnificent architecture, the capital city of Syria can also boast a heritage of fairytale palaces and sumptuous private houses of comparable splendour. Brigid Keenan and Tim Beddow record these priceless architectural gems in this classic book, now available again in hardback after some years out of print. The text describes the history of Damascus and life in the city today, and then proceeds to describe the houses themselves, their creators and occupants. Superb photographs illustrate not only facades, courtyards, alleyways and fountains, but also beautiful interiors, with exquisite details in marble, stone, wood, paint and mother-of-pearl. "Damascus" is a breathtaking tribute to an amazing architectural heritage.
