After the success of Arabesque — Graphic Design from the Arab World and Persia we’ve edited and designed the second volume Arabesque 2.
The book features groundbreaking artists and designers from Iran and the Middle East showing works with a strong focus on typography which range from handmade graphics to photography, from editorial and type design to 3-dimensional artworks.
The book’s preface is written by Salma Tuqan (Victoria and Albert Museum) and John Martin (co-founder of Art-Dubai). Additional texts and interviews describe the environments in which the featured designers and artists work. Also Arabesque 2 includes a CD with four typefaces. Gestalten Verlag 2011
