Yasmine Taan, author of the book, alongside Hilmi Al-Tuni will be launching and signing the book titled Hilmi Al-Tuni, Evoking Popular Arab Culture
The book signing will take place at Amricani within the Hilmi Al-Tuni's exhibition curated by Nagla Ismail and Bahia Shehab.
This book is part of a series that focuses on inspiring design achievements from the Arab world by highlighting the work of typographers, graphic designers and illustrators. Hilmi Al-Tuni is one of the most prominent Egyptian illustrators and book designers. With his ubiquitous work, he has formed the visual sensitivities of generations of Arab children and adults alike. Socially motivated, he strove to develop a true Arab style of illustration, combining old lettering styles, symbolism, popular culture and modernist-style painting. This richly illustrated monograph presents the breadth and variety of his work, beginning with an intimate interview.
