Library Corner: Living Cultures in the Arab World

Living cultures in the arab world

This is one of my parents’ books. We bought it on my second ever visit to Berlin, in the now-closed-down Vitra Design Museum. It’s quite an academic book, with lots of text about history and technology, but I’m a lazy girl and never read any of it. I just like to look at the beautiful saturated colours in the pictures. How amazing is that Saudi Arabian primary colour house?!
