Congratulations, it’s a book!


I don’t know if you all heard, but Nic and I wrote a book about Moroccan henna.  Date of conception was sometime in 1998 and it’s been gestating all this time, soon to take its first breath.  All the writing, drawing and photographing has been completed, our editor has scrutinized every semicolon and the final tweaks are underway.

Here’s what the back of our book says 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.”
