Beirut’s exhibition center received a visual identity where East meets West. The inspiration for the identity came from the building which distorts the surrounding environment though its corrugated reflective mirror facade. Lebanese-born, Brooklyn-based Mary Choueiter distorted both the Arabic and Latin alphabets to capture the architectures vision. With this project Choueiter is a runner-up for the Core77 Design Award 2011, Category Graphics/Branding/Identity.

1st Printing Press in the Middle East

Posted by rod - 17.06.2010

“The Printing press of Saint Antonius in “Quzhayya” is the first printing press in the Middle East. It is located in a monastery in the Valley of the Saints in the mountains of the north Kaza of Lebanon. According to historians, a movable type printing press was imported from England to the Saint Antonius Monastery in 1585. The first publication was the book of “Mazameer” dated from 1610, and now present in the University of the Holy Ghost in Kaslik, Jouniyé, Lebanon.

Christian monks tricked the Turkish government and printed Arabic Christian religious books (like The Book Of The Mass, The Book Of The Apostils and several others) using the Syriac letters. The word “karshouné” was given to this kind of printing when the Syriac letters were used to write Arabic text. Nowadays we still use the word ”karshouné” only to signify that a person is talking nonsense or that he is not being clear in his/her pronunciation.” More images can bee seen over at 29letters
