Kanafani's Masterpieces

  • Rawaae’ Kanafani — literally meaning “Kanafani’s Masterpieces” is a Publication class project where students are supposed to “design a special book edition (at least three to four books)” for a certain poet, novelist, or an author. Besides designing the book covers, the project’s deliverables also include designing one full book chapter — including intro pages, index, chapter dividers, and inside pages, designing a bilingual promotional A6 booklet, and an A2 promotional poster announcing the launch of the special edition.

    Ghassan Kanafani was a famous Palestinian journalist, novelist, and short story writer, whose writings were deeply rooted in Arab Palestinian culture, inspired a whole generation during and after his lifetime, both in word and deed. Here's the workflow of my project, Kanafani's Masterpieces, which is a collection that I made up — for the project's sake, of course, that includes three of his bestsellers, Men in the Sun (1963), A World That Is Not Ours (1959), and Back to Haifa (1970).
