Description - Doors of Oaxaca by Devon Fekete

Over 700 images create a portal into the architectural style of Oaxaca, Mexico's most colonial city. Oaxaca's Spanish Colonial architecture dates back to the early sixteenth century, and these images explore an aesthetic that has hardly altered in all that time. Great wooden doors, studded with hand wrought iron hardware, create punctuation in walls of desert-hued sandstone. Oaxaca is celebrated as the cultural and artistic center of Mexico, and this book will help illustrate why. The rich textures and colors of the diverse doorways will inspire anyone in search of a Southwestern palette.
