‘Antelope’ and ‘Raven’ – Asala publishing house

November 27, 2012

I’m very excited to share this post with you. I’ve been working with Asala publishers on a series of short children’s books. Asala is a publishing house that was established in Beirut in 1998, specializing in Arabic books for children.

My 2 latest books are out. You can check my latest collaboration below.

My next book will be officially launched at Beirut Book Fair on December 12th, 2012. Stay tuned!

City in portraits – Solidere Annual Report

November 12, 2012

I just received the Solidere annual report!

For this year’s edition, 70 individuals who live or work in the center of Beirut, were chosen to be photographed by Spanish photographer Miguel Ángel Sánchez. People from all industries: music, architecture, TV, food, cooking, etc… were chosen to be part of this project. I was one of them! Yes!!!! I was so lucky to be featured in this catalog as the accessory and textile designer at Starch in Saifi.

The photoshoot took place last April. We were asked to bring items that characterize our profession. The fisherman got fish, the florist flowers, the textile designer scarves. etc… The portraits were photographed in a black box created at the Beirut Souks with special studio lights.

The catalog is out, and the photos look gorgeous! You can check them below.

Thank you Limassol and Nathalie for this great opportunity! And thank you Alexandre Dossat for the beautiful text.

Ramadaniyat book

August 29, 2011

Kalimat, the first publishing house in the UAE dedicated to publishing children’s books in Arabic has launched a book of activities at the beginning of the month of Ramadan (August). The book, called Ramadaniyat, written by Author Hala Al Turki is divided into 2 sections: DIY activities and cooking. The idea of the book is to entertain children during the month of Ramadan by doing several types of activities. I was contacted by Kalimat in March to do the design and illustrations of the book. I finally received copies last week. Here are some pictures! I am posting some pictures from the book signing event that took place in Dubai on August 11th 2011 and some press release articles.  Thank you Dareen and Lama for that great opportunity! It’s my first children’s book. : ) Y Javi, gracias por las fotos : p
