Project Description

Mawahib is a series of books showcasing skilled and professional Arab graphic designers, illustrators and photographers.

25 artists are listed with the release of Volume II. Their nationalities encompass the UAE, plus selected artists from the GCC countries, such as Kuwait and Saudi Arabia.

The book is labeled as “Precious Book” because of its unique content, the time and effort it took to be put together independently, and the passion that lies behind its conception. The book's purpose is to inspire, encourage, highlight, showcase, hire.

Volume II carries the same high quality production as Volume Iand features even more images in the form of over 270 pieces of artwork and photographs, with a new minimalist layout.

The book is packed in a kraft mailer which has printed quotes from the featured artists in the book.

Production Lesson(s)

Regardless how you see the images on your screen, you need to be present at the printing press during the production time to go through all the pages, to make sure the level of the colors are correct --especially when you are printing pages full of artwork and photos.Whatever the confirmed set-up for one page may differ for the next page, so it might be dark for page 30 but page 55 looks just perfect. Proof and adjust the colors for each spread!”
