A comprehensive showcase. Excellent book. Must have 4 Feb. 2013
By Goffredo Puccetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As an European graphic designer now working in the Gulf region, I found myself profoundly ashamed of how little did I know about arabic and persian contemporary graphic design before moving here! This book is an excellent and comprehensive showcase of the works of the most prominent and emerging graphic designers and visual artists from the arab world. It is an absolute must-have for anyone interested in topic such as modern arabic type design. It is well designed with accurate information and plenty of beautiful illustrations and photos.
The book would deserve five stars if it weren't for the custom made typeface used through the book: a western typeface that mimics arabic calligraphic style. Maybe it is not entirely rational, but I just hate all these 'alì baba fonts'; of course I am all in favour of contamination and cross-cultural design; I just feel that designing a western typeface so that a lower case 'a' resemble a 'ta marbuta', the 'q' resembles a 'waa' and so on, it is not the way to achieve something new and interesting, no matter how beautifully crafted such a typeface might be.

By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a pretty book but it is too focused on work that is esoteric and/or avant-garde. There is little in the way of mass communication on display, so don’t expect to learn much about graphic design that Arabic-speakers encounter in their daily lives.
