Arabic design and typography pioneer Khatt Books launched their new third and fourth installments in the Arabic Design Library series, Thursday, during an author's talk and book signing at Sursock Museum. The series intends to highlight the work of important Arab typographers, graphic designers and illustrators who produced prominent work in the '60s-'80s, with each book dedicated to one designer and medium. Iraqi artist Dia al-Azzawi was a significant force in modernist design. Hakim started working on her book in 2015, after AbiFares tasked her with digging through Azzawi's illustrations and prints, then seen as an expression of social and political activism. The Arabic Design Library project stemmed primarily from AbiFares' annoyance at the lack of research on the region's design heritage.Overall, Khatt Books plans to publish 24 titles in the Arabic Design Library series.Khatt Books is currently working on the next three titles in the series.
