Lebanese graphic designer, painter, art critic, and writer Emile Menhem became involved in politics at a young age and joined the creative team at the United Palestinian Press in the late 1970s, where he designed and illustrated an impressive number of posters, books, and printed matter. Following the invasion of Lebanon in 1982, he fled to Paris along with numerous other Arab intellectuals, where his designs for various magazines contributed significantly to shaping Arab thought during the 1980s and ’90s. He has since remained a prolific graphic designer, which is why this book offers a fascinating and extensive insight into his creative and political mind through the years.
