"The Riads of Marrakech" by Elan Fleischer (ACC Editions, $53) is a book filled with striking, incredibly vibrant and detailed photos of twelve of the Riads of Medina in Marrakech, which are traditional guesthouses. The amazing architectural detail, the colors, and the luxuriousness of it all took my breath away. Each photo makes you feel like you've been transported to an exotic paradise vacation - pools included. Check out my gallery and you'll see just what I mean.
