On display are old children's storybooks showcasing some of the best late 20th-century typography, illustration, and design from the Arab world –including iconic illustrations and designs by Helmy El Touny and Burhan Karkoutly. Bedtime fables, cookbooks, animal stories, and religion guides – some dating back from 1956, have been carefully selected and archived and are now on display.
The archive is home to the work of a generation that directly inspired so much of the contemporary art and design culture in the Arab world.
Researchers, artists and designers are welcome to visit and use the library.
The library is open to the public.
