Last year's exhibition at the RIBA as part of the Yemen Festival was disappointing in its presentation of Yemeni architecture. Although tending to overplay the abundant 'local colour', the photographs by Pascal and Maria Marechaux in Yemen (Thames and Hudson, 1998. 240pp. £40) do more justice to the country's remarkable buildings and dramatic landscapes. Right: the town of Shibam. Far right: Mosque of al-Mahwit, San'a
