Studying this year so far has been so much more about research, though soon we'll be getting stuck into design. I've really enjoyed searching for sources to go along with our work and the other day I came across this old French book Le Maroc, by Jean Louis Miege. It shows Morocco in the 1950s and having been to Fez just a few weeks ago, the past 60 years doesn't appear to have changed the city much at all! The donkeys are still carrying impossibly heavy loads, men still dress in long, hooded gowns and the streets are still teaming with people.
