Arabesque 2 is a collection of recent cutting-edge work by young designers and activists from the Arab world and Iran. The examples of typography, graphic design, logos, editorial design, and illustration presented here chart a compelling course between local visual convention and a modern international style that is emblematic of the increasing cultural emancipation of the entire Middle East. The book’s rich selection of groundbreaking visuals is supplemented by texts and interviews that describe the environments in which the featured designers and artists work. Arabesque 2 also includes a preface by John Martin, co-founder of Art Dubai, and a CD-ROM with 4 typefaces related to its themes.
