We gave a workshop on bilingual editorial design at University of the Arts Bremen. We gave the master class a little insight into working bilingual with Arabic and Latin. Especially working with different scripts is an enormous challenge as not only two languages but also two completely different type systems confront each other.
Students of the master class were assigned to produce a bilingual publication. The final concept was fantastic – the clever arrangement and binding makes it possible to read the publication without flipping the book or doubling content. The book is bound on both sides — the reader decides in the beginning which language he wants to read and cuts the respective thread.
